Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves along with Mississippi State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs will address the state’s response during the hour-long virtual meeting from the studios of WJTV Jackson, Miss.
The town hall will open with Reeves and Dobbs providing the latest information on the state’s response to the coronavirus crisis.
The broadcast will then turn to questions submitted by viewers from around the state. Viewers will be invited to submit questions to Reeves and Dobbs via social media. Preference will be given to those questions submitted as videos rather than texts.
The live event will be broadcast and streamed by stations in Mississippi, Tennessee, Alabama and Louisiana.
“We are proud to harness the combined resources of our local station operations serving Mississippi to bring this virtual Town Hall directly to viewers across the state,” said Tim Busch, Nexstar Broadcasting’s president.
