The COVID-19 pandemic presents our nation and our world with an unprecedented crisis. Across the country, local radio and television stations have stepped up to guide their communities through this challenging time. In addition to the locally focused news and updates that are vital to your community, broadcasters are providing public service announcements and health education, support and promotion for local businesses and positive stories about people coming together.
We’re proud to share this selection of the great work broadcasters are doing to hold America’s towns and cities together through this crisis. To share how local stations are helping in your hometown, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 2.47 million American jobs depend on broadcasting, and the local broadcast radio and television industry - and the businesses that depend on it - generate $1.17 trillion annually for the nation's economy.
