COVID-19: Hard Questions, Real Answers Live Call-in Special (March 18-19)

KSPB will air a nationwide live call-in special on COVID-19 produced by Minnesota Public Radio and hosted by MPR News’ Kerri Miller and WABE’s Rose Scott.

The special will occur over two days at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Audiences across the nation are invited to call in and ask medical and public health professionals their hard questions.

Each of the stand-alone midday call-in shows will shine a spotlight on the COVID-19 crisis:

  • Kerri Miller

    Wednesday, March 18: Kerri is joined by guests from the Mayo Clinic to talk about the science of treating COVID-19 — the challenges medical professionals are facing, what they know about the spread, and their plans for stopping it.

  • Rose Scott

    Thursday, March 19: We will be partnering with station WABE in Atlanta, GA (home of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) for the second hour of the special, centered around public health.

Listener calls will be taken as live only, not pre-recorded. Call-in number: 800-242-2828
