COVID-19: Hard Questions, Real Answers


In response to station interest, we are partnering with MPR News to present a two-part live national call-in show — "COVID-19: Hard Questions, Real Answers." The special will occur over two days on March 18 and March 19 at 11 a.m. on KPBX. The special will feature medical and public health professionals and our host will take live listener calls from across the country.

MPR News Host Kerri Miller will host this live call-in special. Listener calls will be taken as live only, not pre-recorded. Call-in number: 800-242-2828.

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

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.

Thursday, March 19: MPR will partner 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.
