Balanced Debate For The Old North State.
The red, white and blue July 4th NC SPIN updates the COVID-19 virus in our state and how it might impact the opening of schools. With just a little more than two months before November's elections we examine some of the statewide races. Plus we ask the panel to tell us something we don't know. On this week's NC SPIN panelists include Rob Schofield from NC Policy Watch, Donna Martinez with WPTF and the John Locke Foundation, communications consultant Peg O'Connell and John Hood, syndicated columnist and author. Brad Crone moderates this week's NC SPIN. Be sure to watch Friday night at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 12:30 p.m. on UNC-TV. You can also watch Friday night at 10 p.m., Saturday at 4:30 or Sunday at 10 a.m. on the North Carolina Channel. And you can always stream the program at your leisure from our website ncspin.com. Thank you for watching NC SPIN.
