Live streaming of breaking news is nothing new in the Cleveland-Akron market (DMA 19), but WOIO wanted to provide its viewers with more than just a video feed.

KHOU has been in a temporary studio since the station lost its building to Hurricane Harvey. But the Tegna station in Houston is making strides towards settling into a permanent new home. On Friday, the station debuted its new Avenida studio in downtown Houston.
