New Documentary Airing this Week

Full documentary now available:

Other ways to watch:

  • Available 24/7 on the WCPO9 Livestream on devices like Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. 


Dear friends, 

A grandmother trying to replace lost income and keep her family financially stable... 

A construction worker who made $200 a day and now finds himself unemployed... 

A veteran trying to maintain consistent employment and meet basic needs... 

A grandmother worried about the pandemic’s effect on her grandchildren’s mental health and development... 

These are all stories of COVID-19. They’ll be on display in the documentary "United Is the Way: A Story of Help, Hope and Healing" airing at 7:30 p.m. Thursday on WCPO Channel 9. Please join me in learning more about those struggling through the pandemic and United Way of Greater Cincinnati’s attempts to help them recover and revitalize.

This pandemic upended lives throughout our community. United Way of Greater Cincinnati’s work for systemic change – work convening resources from many different sectors to strategically converge on ingrained community problems — is more important than ever.

We are fortunate Scripps’ Newsy unit, along with P&G and WCPO, agreed to produce and air this special documentary. Please check out this trailer. I hope you’ll tune in Thursday for the full show and learn more about how to help your neighbors.
