What a fabulous time we had on Wednesday, June 14, as MetroEast celebrated the 1000th episode of our flagship program, Community Hotline. CEO Marty Jones pulled out all the stops to make this an event to remember with delicious hors d’ouevres, drinks, and even a cake featuring the face of Co-Producer/Host Monica Weitzel!

2015 was a busy, busy year for MetroEast as we worked with local youth and partnered with non-profit organizations, government entities and the community at large.

If you've never set foot in our amazing studio in Gresham, we invite you to do so in 2016.
