The CBS Owned and Operated Station Group has launched Megaphone on KPIX and KOVR/KMAX.
The result of the 2016 Presidential election has revealed a divided country, and TEGNA stations are using Megaphone TV's participation technologies in new ways to gather the opinions of their audiences from all sides of the political spectrum on both their linear broadcasts and on social channels through Facebook and Facebook Live.
Megaphone TV’s live, interactive participation technology launched on Facebook Live and Periscope through a seamless integration with NowThis’ live coverage of the second Presidential Debate of 2016, held on Sunday, October 9th between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump at Washington University in St. Louis.
CBS San Francisco's KBCW rang in the start of the 2016-2017 NFL season with an audience "Face Off" poll. In light of the recent controversy surrounding 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, "Bay Area Nightbeat" gave the audience an opportunity to voice an opinion on who should be the starting 49er quarterback.
VIewers of AMC's "Preacher" had, like fans of AMC's other flagship shows "The Walking Dead," "Better Call Saul," and "Fear the Walking Dead," an opportunity to join the live conversation with host Chris Hardwick and guests Executive Producers Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen as well as actor Ian Coletti ("Eugene Root").
