, by Patrick Maks

Today The Associated Press debuts a new daily podcast focused on the coronavirus pandemic: “Ground Game: Inside the Outbreak.”

The podcast provides important factual information about COVID-19 and takes listeners inside the hardest hit areas through interviews with AP reporters who are based in 250 locations across the globe, from Italy to China to Spain and beyond.

Hosted by AP’s Ralph Russo, the podcast offers listeners the expertise of AP’s health and science experts. It also includes insight into COVID-19’s impact on everything from the economy to sports to daily life.

In Monday’s episode, Russo speaks with News Director for Greater China Ken Moritsugu, in Beijing, who helped lead AP’s coverage of the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak.

“Ground Game: Inside the Outbreak” is produced and distributed by Westwood One, America’s largest audio network. 

New episodes are available every weekday afternoon on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Google Podcasts.

AP’s “Ground Game” political podcast hosted by Washington Bureau Chief Julie Pace will continue.
