presents the issues, people and events that shape public affairs in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia. Told by a diverse group of reporters and producers, IN Close
stories explore the context behind the news, and try to anticipate civic and cultural concerns before they become news.
Veteran journalist Deborah Wang brings her KUOW radio and ABC News experience to her role as host of IN Close’s interstitial broadcast platform. The series won three regional Emmys in 2015.
“With IN Close, we’re renewing our commitment to current affairs and we’re excited to create the kind of insightful, long-form reporting that can only be seen on public television,” says Rob Dunlop, KCTS 9’s President and CEO. “This series exemplifies KCTS 9’s goal, through great storytelling, to inspire a smarter world.”
