PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — This week on Flashpoint: Host and KYW Community Affairs reporter Cherri Gregg asks the burning questions about the recent weeks of unrest following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Our journalists, like many people, have been working to process this unprecedented time in our nation’s history.

So this weekend, KYW Newsradio presents "Witness to Change: A Flashpoint Special" – a 1-hour program that reflects on the unique moment we face as a community and a nation.

This special program features the diverse voices of KYW Newsradio who have covered the events of recent weeks from both in front of and behind the mic. Our Black journalists also share their experiences and perspectives with the goal of understanding issues of systemic racism and how this flashpoint will shape the future of Philadelphia and beyond.
