Award-winning broadcast professional, Tre’ Tailor, has launched Coping with COVID–a timely one-hour show that provides updates on the pandemic and information to help you thrive and survive COVID-19. The wildly popular show has gained a loyal and tremendous following; growing from 25,000 people to over 40,000 in under six months.
Tre’ created Coping with COVID to reach and appeal to the huge demographic that does not rely on traditional sources such as radio, TV and print to get their news and information. Instead, this growing population turns to social media for updates which is, unfortunately, often shrouded in misinformation, gossip and rumor. Coping with COVID provides credible information from a trusted professional where viewers can not only gain necessary and timely news of the day, but also access to local, state and national leaders who can hear their concerns and answer questions in real time!
The popularity and credibility of the show gained attention from several entities that saw this as an innovative opportunity to connect to a viable audience who are often overlooked. Coping with COVID is proud to have partnerships with: SC DHEC, the City of Columbia Office of Business Opportunities, Columbia Housing and Palmetto Media Connections and others. The show covers a wide range of topics including COVID testing, symptoms, treatments, updates, proper mask wearing and removal, School and College updates, Children’s care, health and wellbeing, Voting and Elections, Employment and Entrepreneur info, Mental, Physical and Spiritual Health, COVID effected events and activities plus current events and news stories and issues that continue to affect us while living during this COVID climate.
“The early weeks of the Pandemic and quarantine were so scary and confusing. I knew I had to do something to keep my community informed. So, I decided to use my large social media following combined with my journalistic skills and reputation as a broadcaster to launch the show. I figured everyone could do something. This is what I can do!”Tre Tailor
