Posted on 4/1/2021

iHeartMedia launched a new original limited podcast series, "COVID-19 Immunity in Our Community," on March 31 aimed at sharing timely and accurate information about COVID-19 vaccines from a journalistic perspective. Produced in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the show is hosted by ABC News television broadcaster Robin Roberts and new episodes will be released every two weeks.

The podcast will bring leaders and experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and other highly respected voices in the medical and scientific communities to have conversations separating fact from fiction and to arm listeners with the tools they need to make educated decisions about COVID-19 vaccines.

The new podcast will also draw perspectives from Americans across different communities including health care workers, journalists, and skeptics, who each share their unique and personal experience with vaccination.
