The Scripps ABC affiliate in Cleveland orchestrated a one-hour special, which aired on November 29th at 8pm, to empower its audiences to fight foreclosure and organize clean-up efforts in local neighborhoods.
The live program was hosted by Danita Harris and Chris Flanagan, anchors at WEWS. They were supported by a team of MMJs.
NewsChannel5 hosted lawmakers on the city, state and federal level in studio, while including housing experts and a live audience from two remote locations.
The program also featured a live web chat on newsnet5.com.
The station also unveiled a Building Better Neighborhoods toolkit during the show to serve as a resource for residents ready to make a difference in their own neighborhood.
