OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Oklahoma’s federal legislative leaders will address the response to the coronavirus outbreak during a live virtual Town Hall on Wednesday, May 13.

The 60-minute virtual Town Hall will be hosted from the KFOR studios.

The television broadcast will be hosted by KFOR-TV News 4 anchors Kevin Ogle and Joleen Chaney, along with Karen Larsen of KJRH-TV (NBC), and will air on KFOR and stream on two other Nexstar stations serving Oklahoma including, KFDX-TV in Wichita Falls, and KAMR-TV in Amarillo, TX. The broadcast will also be carried live by KJRH-TV in Tulsa, OK. Oklahoma viewers may access a live stream of the Town Hall online by visiting KFOR.comtexomashomepage.com, and myhighplains.com or KJRH.com

The Town Hall will open with a review of the latest developments in the battle against the pandemic, after which Mr. Ogle, Ms. Chaney and Ms. Larsen will pose questions to the Senator and the Representatives about relief efforts across the state. Mr. Ogle and Ms. Chaney will then speak with members of Oklahoma’s congressional delegation about the specific needs of each district and ask questions posed by viewers.
