Direct from his Chapel Hill home, it’s “John News,” a video podcast written, produced and performed by 8-year-old John Wortman, a second-grader at Ephesus Elementary School. The Local Reporter is proud to present the weekly “John News” to help, in John’s words, “bring some happiness to people during these trying times.”
HE HAD COVID-19 – AND LIVED! John interviews a drummer from California who spent more than a month in the hospital with coronavirus disease. He almost died, but now he can tell his story. John News also updates the breaking story about a kid who jumps off things.
