PORTLAND, Ore. — Editor's note: Sunrise Extra is live in the video player above as it airs, at about 7 a.m. every weekday.

Nina Mehlhaf, Ashley Korslien, Brenda Braxton, Drew Carney, Rod Hill and Chris McGinness are working harder than ever to connect you directly to our newsroom every weekday morning. We've even started a newscast just for our social platforms, which comes to you live from the newsroom as soon as the Sunrise newscast ends.

During the 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. shows, you can chat with Nina, our newest member of the Sunrise crew, and ask questions or just let us how you feel about any topic. She'll include your insights during her on-air reports throughout the morning.

Join our Viewer Voice poll, use the hashtag #IAmUpPDX, post on our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram or Twitter to interact with us throughout the sunrise newscast.

And just after the newscast (at about 7 a.m.), join us LIVE on your favorite platform--Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, or in the video player above--to keep the conversation going.
