Hearst Television is deepening its COVID-19 reporting with the launch of Field Notes, a Facebook Watch show dedicated to reporting on coronavirus news. This weekly show will feature news highlights from Hearst TV stations in 26 markets.
“Local reporting is never more critical than in the times when our communities are most in need of reliable and accurate information,” said Andrew Fitzgerald, Hearst Television vice president and chief digital content officer. “We’re proud to amplify Hearst Television’s resonant and important reporting beyond the local communities we support, to help inform Americans of how this story is unfolding across the country. As our reporting adapts, we see this as an important time to reach across audience platforms, combining the complementary strength of Hearst’s broadcasts with the reach of Facebook to help serve the viewing public.”
Each episode of Field Notes will offer themed insights into the worldwide pandemic on a local level, while adding commentary from a global perspective as well. The first episode titled Coronavirus: Life Disrupted, aired Monday, March 23, 2020 on Facebook Watch.
Field Notes is Heart’s second Facebook Watch show, joining “Dispatches From The Middle,” which launched in September 2018.
