Watch Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's coronavirus town hall

Update: Whitmer strongly hints she'll extend coronavirus stay-home order in Michigan

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will answer questions live in a "Governor's Town Hall" Thursday night. Several commercial and public television stations in the Detroit market have partnered to broadcast the town hall to give residents to talk to the governor during the coronavirus crisis.

Viewers will be able to pose questions to answer during the hour-long live event, which organizers are calling a first-of-its-kind collaboration.  

Carolyn Clifford of WXYZ Channel 7, Huel Perkins of WJBK Channel 2 and Devin Scillian of WDIV Channel 4 will host the town hall from their studios in Detroit, while Whitmer will join a live feed from Lansing.

Detroit channels 20 (WMYD-TV), 50 (WKBD-TV), 56 (WTVS-TV) and 62 (WWJ-TV) are also expected to air the broadcast in Detroit, and can also be watched on stations around the state and right here on this post.
