WXYZ, WXMI Team Up for Back-to-School Virtual Town Hall

On July 30, Scripps Media’s WXYZ-TV (Detroit) and WXMI-TV (Grand Rapids) teamed together to present a virtual town hall on returning safely back to school.

Moderated by WXYZ anchors Carolyn Clifford and Glenda Lewis and WXMI Anchor Mike Avery, the program brought in experts including State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice, Dr. Joneigh Khaldum, Chief Medical Executive and Chief Deputy Director for Health and Human Services and Detroit Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Nikolai Vitti.

The moderators asked their own questions as well as those posed by viewers. The Town Hall was presented from 7 to 8 p.m. on both station’s digital platforms, including websites, apps and social media.
