WBNS, the CBS affiliate in Columbus, Ohio, owned by the Dispatch Printing Company, is airing a one-hour special on bullying in partnership with The Columbus Metropolitan Club.
Hear Me Now: Bullying, Cyberbullying and Our Children airs tonight at 9 live on WBNS, 10TV.com and on the station’s Facebook page.
“The suicide of a 14-year-old boy in Columbus sparked an intense social media conversation that opened the floodgates,” says Kelly Frank, WBNS’ news director.
“Parents, teens, teachers and administrators want to stop cyberbullying, but are struggling to discuss it openly and honestly with each other. We call this disparity the Bullying Gap. We hope to break down communication barriers, quiet fears, bridge that gap and begin a conversation that will continue beyond our town hall.”
The special promises to be an evening of honest talk about what is really going on, focused on finding constructive solutions to end this growing problem.
Viewers will hear from parents, administrators, experts and teens who are stepping up and courageously taking on the tough topics of bullying, suicide and mental health.
