Coronavirus Conversation Logo

In a historic first, health care and broadcast entities across western Virginia are teaming up under a shared goal: flattening the COVID-19 curve.  

On Monday, April 6 at 7 p.m., all regional television network affiliates (WDBJ, WFXR, WSET, WSLS, and PBS Blue Ridge) and three regional radio stations (WFIR, WLNI and WVTF) will simulcast an hour-long, live panel discussion on coronavirus. Clinicians from the Virginia Department of Health, Carilion Clinic, LewisGale Medical Center and the Salem VA Medical Center will sit on the panel.  

Broadcast partners will also provide digital access through their online streaming services. This scale of collaboration is unprecedented. In a time of such uncertainty, it takes an entire community to flatten the COVID-19 curve. In western Virginia, health care and broadcast partners are bridging the gap to ensure that residents have accurate and reliable information to combat COVID-19.
