PORTLAND, Ore — For the past four decades, outdoor reporter and television host Grant McOmie has told the stories of the people, places, outdoor activities and environmental issues of the Pacific Northwest. Now, in a time when everyone is looking for new ways to escape, McOmie is sharing his vast knowledge of Oregon’s outdoors and his warm storytelling style in a new podcast launching today from KGW, “Grants Getaways”.
McOmie is the host of the “Grant’s Getaways” television program, which airs on KGW and explores the Pacific Northwest’s back roads and byways. On his podcast, each episode will transport you to one of Oregon’s hidden gems or unexpected treasures. Close your eyes and travel from the great indoors to the great outdoors as McOmie spins a yarn so descriptive, it’s almost like you’re there!
“I hope people will listen and learn about the traveling life as I share favorite stories, times, and adventures across Oregon,” said McOmie. “It’s always been my hope that Grant’s Getaways viewers, readers, and now listeners will learn something new about Oregon they didn’t know before! Why live here if you don’t go searching for those singular moments that set Oregon apart from just about everywhere else?”
“Grant’s Getaways” is KGW’s fifth active podcast. It joins KGW’s quickly growing podcast library which includes “Under the Big Umbrella with Matt Zaffino”, the hugely successful true-crime podcast, “Urge to Kill” as well as the popular “3-on-3 Blazers” and “Straight Talk with Laural Porter” podcasts.
