International Recognition for the Governor Ohio


The BBC headline declares him the U-S governor who saw it coming early. International praise is being heaped on Ohio Governor Mike DeWine for his leadership during this coronavirus outbreak.

The BBC also praises his calm approach at his daily briefings, going into great detail about what is being done by the state to try and slow the spread. You can hear those briefings every day at 2pm here on Newsradio 700WLW.
