Keep it safe peeps!
Keep it safe peeps!
Leading off our 2018 2nd quarter Public Information Officer (PIO) Training at WOIO Channel 19/43 (CBS Affiliate).
I’m proud to have so many PIOs from across the State of Ohio and West Virginia discussing current issues and breaking news.
Collaboration and coordination were consistent themes we revisit all the time including Joint Information Center and Joint Information Systems (JIC/JIS). Current news stories like the FL shooting were hot button topics but we also discussed the Boston Bombing, FacebookLive killer, 2016 Republican National Convention, Chardon Shooting, Burke Lakefront plane crash, 3 girls missing for 10+ years, Imperial Ave murders, World Series, and NBA Championships.
But knowing that other PIOs are going through the same issues, we can commiserate and work toward a solution. Yes, of course we did the behind the scenes tours of the studio, desk assignment/reporter bullpen….
…anchor desks, and even popped into a planning meetings for the evening broadcast.
We had so many various disciplines represented.
Great to see all those hard working PIOs ensuring the safety for their communities on Presidents’ Day.
Special thanks to Anchor Chris Tanaka, Acting News Director Brian Sinclair, Mel Watson, Assignment Editor Shelly Steinmetz, and Reporter Jennifer Picciano. Trust me – it’s great to have media partners working with the NEOhio PIOs!

Happy Aloha Friday everyone!
Got to work with Cleveland Police today on an ongoing campaign for safety within the community.
But it was such a nice day today that we decided to roll it out in front of Cleveland Police HQ. FYI-a downtown public open plaza makes it a bit more challenging to do live social media feeds.
No time for funny business because FacebookLive is…well LIVE! So no second takes, redo, or screwing around!
OK, a little screwing around.
Yes, sharing the message on FacebookLive does aggregate the video higher on Facebook users’ feed and notifications – however, the content needs to be engaging. Also, needs a teaser, and lead in, and most importantly, a hook!
The story of the arrest flowed easily and the officers were able to recount the events. Like countless police officers across this country, all are proud of the work they do within every community and continue to provide tireless service to their constituents.
Did you see Cleveland Police talking about N.I.C.E. and their apprehension?
I’ll give you a hint, it had to deal with taking guns off the street…also our hook.
Well, if you missed it, you can watch the full FacebookLive video here:
I hope you enjoyed a little behind the scenes PIO views.
I’m glad to be working with a great organization to bring more safety to all residents in the community.
Looking forward to seeing my fellow PIOs this afternoon for the quarterly NorthEast Ohio Public Information Officer (NEO-PIO) training at WKYC (NBC Affiliate in Cleveland, Ohio).
Glad to be able to put a face to a voice…and to be able to talk under non-stressful times is so nice.
For all PIOs/PAOs – Building relationships and networking are critical components of a successful communicator. Yeppers, networking is soooo….
Indeed it is Gretchen
Fun fact-did you now we have a historic USCG station in Cleveland?
Pretty sure that there are better ways to learn more about becoming a law enforcement officer.
Be careful out there.
