June 2020 Briefing Schedule Plan

As we move out of the full stay at home order in Tacoma and Pierce County, we plan to change the schedule of our shows to reflect the perceived speed of updates, and to allow us to continue working on other aspects of KTQA-LP.  Should there be a new stay at home order at some time in the future, this plan would also reflect how we would approach those updates.

During all phases of reopening, we will do an update if the information is important enough to warrant it, including breaking into other programming.   A full explanation of the phased plan is available here.

This also means that the “Daily Briefing” name would become somewhat inaccurate as we move out of a full social distancing model.   We think that’s kind of funny.

Phase 1

Phase 1 would use the schedule we developed at the beginning of the stay at home order: Weekdays at 3:00 PM with rebroadcasts throughout the day.

Phase 2

In Phase 2, the live Briefings will be at 6:00 PM on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with rebroadcasts on off days.

Phase 3

In Phase 3, episodes would air on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM, without rebroadcasts.

Phase 4

As Phase 4 would essentially constitute a return to pre-quarantine behavior, this would constitute the end of Daily Briefing episodes.
