Newport, Oregon Gets Hollywood Treatment on TV

Nye Beach, w/ Jump-Off Joe in the distance

(Newport, Oregon) – Some central Oregon coast landmarks will get their 15 minutes of fame Friday, June 2, as Portland’s independently produced TV show PDXposed will bring them to the small screen.

PDXposed airs every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 7 p.m. on Comcast Cable’s Channel 14 – which is available in many parts of Oregon.

The show that begins its run on June 2 will spotlight vacation rental resort Bella Beach, the Nye Beach district of Newport, the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival, Village Market & Deli in Newport, various stories about glass floats and crabbing on the central coast, as well as an interview with BeachConnection.net editor Andre’ Hagestedt.

Nye Beach

The Bella Beach segment will take moments from the crew’s stay there, and will showcase the sprawling resort of some 90 homes, their amenities as well as the beach there.

The crew, which includes host Jon Olson and co-host Heather Borgens, spent a few days in the area in February, filming at various locations, including the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival. One segment on the festival has already aired, and another will air on the June 2 show.

The crew walked around the atmospheric Nye Beach neighborhood, talking to BeachConnection.net’s Andre’ Hagestedt about the area, who also took them on a brief historical tour of the nearby Jump-Off Joe landmark – a rock structure with a colorful past.

Olson and Borgens gobbled down some lunch at Village Market & Deli, and the restaurant’s sister business, Blu Cork Wine Bar, was also talked about.

PDXPosed is up for two Emmy nominations in the 2006 Northwest Regional Emmy Awards, run by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. One nomination is for “Entertainment Special or Series,” and host/executive producer Jon Olson is a nominee in the category of “Host/Talent – Non-News.” The awards ceremony is held June 3 in Seattle, Washington.
