Given the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, with its overwhelming impact on New York City and its metropolitan area, it is worth exploring how various New York-based media ventures have covered the outbreak. Indeed, publications such as The New York Times and New York gained attention for dropping their paywalls for virus-related coverage, while providing nearly up-to-the-minute updates on the virus' spread, as well as its impact on the city and surrounding areas. Yet, as a conversation with Michael Felicetti, Vice President of New York Interconnect's News Division, suggested, local television news has played no small part in keeping New Yorkers abreast of the goings-on in the time since the Coronavirus arrived.
