Graham Media’s NBC affiliate WDIV Detroit offered a “Shutdown Survival Guide” for federal workers, thanks to Consumer Reporter Hank Winchester and the “Help Me Hank” team.
On January 16, WDIV dedicated its news coverage to helping the estimated 6,000 Michigan families affected by the federal government shutdown. Topics included free resources offered by companies, non-profits and stores; preserving credit; handling mortgage or rent; and dealing with medical bills.
“As a station we believe we have an obligation to use our resources to connect viewers with local companies and agencies that can help them weather the hard times,” said News Director Kim Voet.
