Central Oregon Daily debuts May 2 on KOHD-ABC and KBNZ-CBS. The debut of Central Oregon Daily ushers in an alternative news program for television viewers in Central Oregon.

The newscast, which focuses on storytelling, weather, and local events and issues, launches May 2 on KOHD-ABC and KBNZ-CBS, powered by Zolo Media.

News anchor Diane Dean is a Spokane native returning to her Pacific Northwest roots and meteorologist Jack Church brings more than 30 years of forecasting experience to keep up with the ever-changing microclimates of Central Oregon.

The storytelling team is led by Mackenzie Wilson, a veteran reporter from KTVZ-TV Channel 21 and, more recently, myWindow. Wilson will also anchor the weekend editions of Central Oregon Daily.

A talented team of reporters, photographers and editors are the driving force behind the show’s mission to accurately depict life and culture in one of the fastest-growing and most interesting regions in the country.

“With the experience, creativity and community ties of the team we’ve assembled, I think we have a chance to change the way local news is produced and presented, not only here in Central Oregon, but also around the country,” said Curtis Vogel, manager of news and local content for “Central Oregon Daily.”

“Central Oregon Daily” will air weeknights at 6pm on KOHD-ABC and 7pm on KBNZ-CBS. On Sunday, you can catch “Central Oregon Daily” at 6 p.m. on KBNZ-CBS and 11pm on KOHD-ABC.
