That’s in addition to NBC, ABC and CBS and major cable channels, such as Bravo, E! and Nat Geo and international channels.
The show will be aired in 180 countries.
The global special will highlight community health workers and the efforts to end the pandemic. Multimillion-dollar pledges to the WHO’s Solidarity Response Fund are also showcased.
