Lee Zurik is the anchor of the News Orleans TV Station, WVUE, and runs InvestigateTV, the investigative unit of Gray Television. In March, Lee and his team at InvestigateTV launched a comprehensive COVID-19 County-by-County Tracker in order to start gathering much needed data on the local distribution of the virus. With their interactive map, which is updated multiple times each day, users can track the latest COVID-19 data in real time organized by county.
Meanwhile, Greta’s show, “Full Court Press” is a weekly syndicated Sunday show that premiered in September 2019 and now plays in over 80% of the country. For the past month, Greta has been chasing down Coronavirus Task Force Members, health officials, and prominent politicians to give her audience the best in coronavirus coverage.
