WHAT: “The Summer of Covid-19” WESTWOOD ONE NEWS special for Memorial Day Weekend

Barbeques and beaches. Death rates and vaccine hopes. It is going to be a summer like no other. American traditions are under threat, from backstage ball fields to seasonal staples like family vacations and summer camps, while others still plan to hit the road or take to the skies during an unprecedented health and financial crisis. Westwood One News presents “The Summer of COVID-19,” a half-hour special available to affiliates on Memorial Day Weekend. Correspondent Christopher Cruise explores how we got here and where we are going, or not going, this summer.

WHEN: “The Summer of Covid-19” news special will replace “The Week in Review” on May 23-24. It will also be available for WWO News stations to download on Thursday, May 22.
