Due to restrictions on large gatherings, the one-hour virtual town hall will take place at the studios of KXAN Austin and bring viewers in communities across the state together via a live television broadcast and livestream video.
Viewers will be invited to submit questions to the Governor and the other state officials via social media using the hashtag #AskAbbott.
The town hall will open with Abbott providing the latest information on the state’s response to the coronavirus crisis, followed by a 15-minute question and answer session between Abbott, the other state officials and KXAN anchor Robert Hadlock.
The broadcast will then allow approximately 45 minutes of questions submitted by viewers across the state. Viewers can pose a question to the governor or any of the show’s guests via a variety of social media platforms using the hashtag #AskAbbott.
Preference will be given to those questions submitted as videos rather than texts.
