Two guys performing, one guy videoing--seen at Pioneer Courthouse Square
These guys grabbed my attention cavorting for their friend's camera as I wandered around Pioneer Courthouse Square before catching the bus to the Rose Garden Arena. Makes you want to spend a few minutes watching their finished product. Not me. I already do enough of that with ones I come across on Facebook, ones my friends or their friends have posted.
Here's a bit about the KGW Studio on the Square: KGW News Channel 8’s HD Studio on the Square is adjacent to the Square’s Visitor Information Center in the southeast corner of Pioneer Courthouse Square. KGW broadcasts its morning and noon newscasts along with the News at 4 and the Live @ 7 show from the Studio and showcases events at the Square in visual detail never seen before.
And a bit more: In 2008–2009, the station developed a high-definition news studio in downtown Portland at Pioneer Courthouse Square, in a space previously occupied by Powell's Books. Regular broadcasts from the location that KGW named the "Studio on the Square" began on March 17, 2009, with the 4:30 a.m. newscast.
