Changes happening at KREM to help prevent the spread of coronavirus
KREM has built a temporary set off-site, which would be used if our newsroom and studio needs to be disinfected. You may see us use this in the coming days as parts of test runs as well. This set will be a lot simpler than our normal studio, so the broadcasts may look different.
KREM's Amanda Roley and other reporters and photographers will no longer be coming to the newsroom or studio unless its absolutely necessary. We have been holding meetings via phone and other digital technologies, and crews will edit stories in cars from the field.
KREM's Laura Papetti, who works on special projects and anchors the noon show, is working from home in an effort to practice social distancing, an important step to slowing the spread of coronavirus.
As part of our effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus and to keep our staff safe, we are having very few members working in the newsroom at any given time. This has led to a newsroom that is much emptier than normal.
KREM's Taylor Viydo has been attending meetings, editing video and making calls from home and remotely during the coronavirus outbreak.
