WUCF TV will host a new locally produced series about the impact of COVID-19 on arts and history groups in Central Florida. The program, In Reach, will premier 11:30 a.m. June 21.
WUCF, Central Florida’s PBS station, in partnership with local organizations will provide an update from community leaders on the lasting effects of the pandemic.
During the show, WUCF executive director Phil Hoffman speaks with representatives of Central Florida arts, culture, history and science organizations about plans to operate in the post-COVID-19 era.
“Central Florida organizations have demonstrated their resilience and creativity during this historic time in our community” says Hoffman. “As Central Florida’s storytellers, WUCF wants to make sure they are seen and heard while navigating this new way of doing business.”
Series guests include Cole NeSmith, founder and CEO of Creative City Project; Jim Helsinger, artistic director of Orlando Shakespeare Theater; Terry Olson, chief instigator at Fusion Fest; Lindsay Taylor, theatre producer at Orlando Fringe Festival; and Lisa Bachman, assistant director of Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida.
