Health Care Workers, “Holding the Line” with COVID-19
In the last two years, our communities have been impacted by COVID-19 and the economic downturn. Many have lost their loved ones and many more are in hospitals, fighting for their lives. Throughout this pandemic, our health care workers have been fighting alongside our families, caring for our community members, and saving lives.
My name is Rupert Salmon, General Manager of He’s Alive Broadcasting and Founder of Rays of Light Television. I am a black male with over 30 years of marketing, sales, and media experience. I’m currently under contract to take full operational and management control of He’s Alive Broadcasting. At the execution of this agreement, we will be one of approximately twenty minority-owned and managed television stations in the United States. Currently, we are the only minority-owned media company in eastern Washington.
We at He’s Alive Broadcasting would like to recognize, honor, and support our health care workers as they’re holding the line in our community. We want to support them by acknowledging the struggles they face on a daily basis. My wife has been an ICU nurse for over 30 years and has shared her stories of the stress, exhaustion, and other experiences of these past two years, unlike any encountered before on the job. The challenges being experienced by her and her coworkers, as the third wave of COVID-19 enters center stage, begs the attention of our community.
