Canceling Covid with Tonya Rivens

    A message from Tonya

    As a Journalist, I was concerned about the alarming number of deaths caused by COVID in my community.  Mainstream media wasn’t telling our story therefore I felt obligated to create a platform.  ‘Canceling COVID’ was launched as a half-hour show in January 2021.  The goal was to have real conversations with everyday citizens, to discuss the impact, to discuss the devastation, to discuss our concerns, and to provide credible information. Guests are everyday citizens from our community who discuss what is important to us as we struggle to navigate life during this Pandemic.  Other guests include professionals, community leaders, state, and national leaders.  The show has also become an outlet for distributing information about food giveaways, testing locations, vaccine locations, rental assistance, news updates, legal information, faith-based efforts, homelessness, hunger, mental health, healthcare, education, finances, and other relevant topics.  Viewers get to hear from people who are trustworthy, and who display empathy, transparency, and understanding.








    ‘Canceling COVID allows its audience to better understand the impact of the disease.  The title and logo for ‘Canceling COVID’ was influenced by cancel culture and the show continues to broadcast live on Facebook and You Tube every Wednesday and Friday at 1PM.   All episodes are posted at cancelingcovid.
