The Year That Was 2020

Original story posted on: December 28, 2020

A former college classmate turned-NBC-TV national news correspondent once told me that he made a career choice—to report the news rather than read the news.

Here at RACmonitor we’ve been reporting a considerable amount of news this year with our weekly news and information service plus nearly 60 special news bulletins on breaking stories, many of which were about the coronavirus pandemic.

As while we were part of history, you and I have lived through a remarkable chapter in our nation’s healthcare history much of which is now conveniently packaged for you at this link. Here you’ll find our top Monitor Mondays podcasts and RACmonitor news features.
