The RBR+TVBR Coronavirus INFOCUS Podcast: WUSA9


How can a local TV station weather the COVID-19 pandemic together with its audience, and local businesses that depend on foot traffic?

Here’s a lesson in how a broadcast media station can be an important business partner, courtesy of Michael Valentine, VP/Station Manager of TEGNA‘s flagship WUSA9 in Washington, D.C.

Valentine is RBR+TVBR Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson’s latest guest on the new RBR+TVBR Coronavirus INFOCUS Podcast. Valentine shares how WUSA9 agreed to work with its TV competitors on encouraging viewers to tune to any local newscast, while helping mom-and-pop shops as well as government workers.
