Portland Anchor Snowboards in South Korea During a Facebook Live

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KGWanchor and YouTube Vlogger Cassidy Quinn took Facebook Live to the next level while covering the Olympics yesterday.

She took viewers along as she snowboarded down a mountain near Pyeongchang, South Korea. Quinn told viewers she had three cameras on her, a phone, her Vlog camera and a Go Pro. She only used her phone for the Facebook Live she did while snowboarding at a local resort.

“This is playing and working,” Quinn said to viewers tuning in. “I’ve been shooting a segment, talking to Americans.”

Remarkably, she didn’t fall and after the run she answered viewer questions about the ski conditions in the area.

Quinn is covering the Olympics for the Tegna-owned NBC affiliate in Portland, Oregon and KTVB in Boise, Idaho. She replaced former MTV personality Brian McFaden as the station’s Live at 7 weekday anchor in October.
