Covering the Debate Debacle #2 — COVID

WCBS asked me to cover first the Presidential Debate from the station’s studios, where we maintain a severely limited in-person staff and a strict COVID protocol.

I was tasked with reporting, writing and producing four 90-second reports for morning drive time. Each covers a different substantive slice of the debate and aired in a four-part rotation every half hour throughout the morning, in combination with CBS Network coverage and guests who gave their perspective on the debate.
