New episode of "The Inside Report" available online
Kitsap County's news magazine selected for national award

(Port Orchard, WA) –  The August edition of “The Inside Report” is now available online. This month’s edition takes you to the Bucklin Hill Bridge reopening, gives you an inside look at this year’s County Fair, and goes on location to see how Kitsap County protects fish during culvert projects. The program airs on BKAT (Channel 3 on Wave and 12 on Comcast) Mondays at 5 p.m. and Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. You can also view the program online at

The Inside Report is a news-magazine style show with a headline news section and two produced field segments. The program started airing last September. In July the show was recognized with a 2016 Award of Excellence from the National Association of Counties. “It’s a great way to keep residents informed of current events, and to show some of the services and programs offered by the County,” said Doug Bear, Public Communications Manager and co-host of the show. “The segments give us time to take a deeper look into things the County does, and highlights County activities that are often not seen by the public,” Bear added.

“I’ve enjoyed hosting the show personally because it’s provided me with an inside look at many things that I didn’t know about our programs and services, despite working here myself.” said co-host Constance Blackburn, a Program Specialist with the County’s Department of Community Development. “The opportunity to showcase the hard work of County employees and their true dedication to serving the community is an honor,” added Blackburn.

The County is looking for your suggestions on segments you want like to see on the program. If you have an idea, please go to the program web page and enter your idea at the bottom of the page.
