Opening up the UP: Thoughts from the TV6 & FOX UP General Manager
The coronavirus pandemic has hurt local businesses, and as businesses and organizations across the state begin to reopen, we should remember to help one another out.
TV6 & FOX UP Vice President and General Manager, Rick Rhoades, wants to encourage everyone to consider buying local when purchasing groceries, pet supplies, vehicles and even contracting work.
