Call-In Special: How Can New England's Economy Survive Coronavirus?

From small business to big employers — from family farms to fishermen — New England’s economy is taking a hit from the coronavirus. 

Join us for an America Amplified special from the New England News Collaborative. We'll bring together voices from across the region, and we want to hear yours.

Air date: Friday, April 10, 2020

  • What’s the impact on your business?
  • Are you in a college town that’s gone quiet? Are you bracing for a summer season with no tourists? 

Call us between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. on Friday, April 10, during our live, regional broadcast. You can also join the conversation by tweeting us at @NENCNewEngland, or emailing AmericaAmplified@nepr.net.
