Mike Rogoway writes “Talked to Harvey Mathews this afternoon for the first time since he quit the Software Association of Oregon a week ago.

Live [insert something here] at The Square | OurPDX

Via OurPDX “KGW is debuting its Studio on the Square this week with celebrations on Friday and an open house on Saturday. The Studio on the Square is KGW’s new HD studio in the former Powell’s Travel bookstore space in Pioneer Courthouse Square. The studio has been built with the reporters sitting with windows at their back, showcasing what is going on out on the square. From a viewer’s perspective, we get to watch both the news and something extra (if it happens.) It’s Portland’s own Today show.”
