Six Things From Channel 6, In Podcast Form For PDX


PORTLAND, ORE. — A Nexstar Media Group TV station has launched its first podcast.

It’s part of a bigger plan to provide those in the Pacific Northwest’s second-largest market a local look at the six things they need to know … that they may not get from the abundance of full-power and low-power radio stations or the Oregonian newspaper as they start their day.

Introducing The Daily 6 from KOIN-6, the CBS affiliate serving Portland.

It marks the station’s first daily podcast, and will be released every morning at 7:15am Pacific.

The podcast is part of the KOIN Podcast Network. It’s a hub for on-demand weather reports and Beyond the Headlines reports, which have appeared sporadically as part of the beta test of the network.

The reports are audio-focused. One is hosted by Ian Costello.

Listening to the podcasts can be done from KOIN’s website or via popular platforms including Apple Podcasts, GooglePlay, Spotify, Stitcher and Podbean.
