ANGEL HIRED AS TV PRODUCER

KBSC Television has named Judi Angel as a new producer as part of a planned expansion of programming.

In addition to producing the live morning show, Coast Today, Angel is planning to produce a call-in program schuduled for Thursday evenings called In My Opinion. Serving as host and moderator is to be Cindi Patterson.

Angel will also be assisting in production of commercials and developing future programs, station officials said.

The community has known Angel as the angel lady of the coast, keeping people company at night for more than five years on KURY Radio.

She is involved in the community and charitable activities such as the annual Muscular Dystrophy Association Coast Cares Car Show and Relay for Life. Angel still holds the title of honorary mayor of the mythical town of Brookings-Harbor, which she won in a fundraiser sponsored by the Vietnam Veterans of America chapter 757.

Terry Patterson, owner of KBSC-TV, said he is proud to have Angel as a member of the station team.

Judi brings a lot of media experience and professionalism to the station, Patterson said. She wears many hats as a producer and we believe her to be an asset to KBSC that will help us to further expand programming, especially local programming.

Angel is currently producing a new program called Inside the Internet that is to introduce the Internet to viewers in a four-part series.

I enjoy drawing upon the many creative and talented local people for programs, Angel said. The coast is blessed with creative people.

I am looking forward to workaing with kids from Brookings-Harbor High School to help them learn about the media. And, of course, the whole KBSC team makes me look good, yet we are all stars working together.

  • Japan shares soar, yen skids after BOJ stuns with new easing steps
    Japanese stocks soared 4.8 percent to their highest close since November 2007 and the yen skidded to near seven-year lows against the dollar on Friday, after the Bank of Japan surprised markets with fresh easing steps it called a pre-emptive move to stoke inflation. The Nikkei stock average marked its biggest one-day gain since June 2013 after Japan's central bank said it would purchase more shares of exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, extend the duration of its portfolio of Japanese government bonds, and increase the pace at which it expands base money to "pre-empt manifestation" of risks. The dollar was buying 111.06, up about 1.7 percent on the day after rising as high as 111.18 yen, its highest since January 2008. "It was a total surprise that the BOJ eased further at this time given that BOJ executives have not voiced such pessimistic views lately.
  • Citigroup sets aside $600 million more to cover legal costs
    Citigroup is one of six major banks that are expected to settle with Britain's Financial Conduct Authority by mid-November over allegations that the banks manipulated foreign exchange markets. Barclays Plc, another of the six banks, said on Thursday it had set aside 500 million pounds for the third quarter to cover potential fines. While the legal costs have hit profits, weighed on share prices, and consumed management time, they have not forced banks to raise money by issuing shares, and are not expected to. Citigroup, for example, is likely to make nearly $28 billion in pre-tax profits over the next five quarters, way more than enough to cover heightened legal expenses, according to analysts at Bernstein Research.
  • Wal-Mart to expand discounts as retail price war heats up
    Wal-Mart said it was bracing for competition to be as tough or tougher than in 2013, when heavy discounting depressed earnings across the industry. Wal-Mart's profits dropped in the holiday quarter last year and it has posted six straight quarters of flat or declining same-store sales. “It is starting to heat up right now, and I would expect it to be at least as competitive as last year," Steve Bratspies, executive vice president of general merchandise for Wal-Mart's U.S. Wal-Mart said it plans to have 20,000 "rollbacks", or a product discounted for at least 90 days, on offer starting on Saturday.
