Join Up To Date's Conversation About Coronavirus Via Text

Up To Date host Steve Kraske will put questions you've sent to KCUR via text to coronavirus experts.

Like all of us, we know you have tons of questions about the coronavirus.

So on Wednesday, March 11, on Up To Date, host Steve Kraske will convene a panel of experts and officials to answer them. We're asking you to TEXT us your questions in advance.

It’s super simple. Text the word COVID to 816-601-4777. You’ll get a prompt to put in your question and we'll get to as many as we can.

We want to let you help shape our coverage with this new texting platform. It helps us serve you, our audiences, in new ways as we collectively face this new public health issue.

Don’t worry, we know you get enough texts from your doctor, your child’s school, the weather service. You only participate if you text the number and opt in!
