KOBI-TV and KOTI-TV Combat Meth across Southern Oregon
California Oregon Broadcasting Inc.’s KOBI-TV Medford and KOTI-TV Klamath, Ore., sponsor a year-round initiative, The Southern Oregon Meth Project, which educates local kids about the dangers of methamphetamines and their devastating impact on individuals, families and the community. Based on recent reports, 75 percent of local foster children are being cared for due to parental absence as a result of meth abuse. Eight out of 10 area arrests are also related to the substance. The Southern Oregon Meth Project combats meth through reality-based television series and radio ads. Additionally, KOBI-TV and KOTI-TV staff hold presentations at local schools and air half-hour specials every quarter to assist in the effort.
