Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Sep 19, 2007




Flint Journal:

WNEM (Channel 5) could add some outdoor electronics that could be viewed by pedestrians after the TV station opens a new office downtown next year. A news conference was held Tuesday to announce that the Saginaw-based CBS affiliate has signed a 10-year lease on space in the Wade Trim building, now under construction in Flint's central business district. "We want to be a part of the rebirth of this city," said Al Blinke, vice president and general manager of WNEM. "We think there are great things going on." He said the station in a couple of years could add a Jumbotron - a giant video display screen - in the plaza that will be built outside Wade Trim's new downtown office building. Meanwhile, he said, they might put a big-screen TV in the window with a speaker so people in the plaza could watch the evening news or other programming. He's also thinking about adding an electronic display board on the outside of the building, with headlines, story updates and other information... Flint project excites TV 5 (Wed, 9/19)
