Fox News has long been known for up-to-the-moment hard news reporting and commentary that has ensured the network remained the nation’s most-watched cable news outlet for 18 consecutive years. Now, Fox News has a new mission to provide “uplifting” content for viewers as the coronavirus crisis grips the world.

A vigorous new outreach titled “America Together” was launched Monday to consolidate news stories and features that underscore well-being and positivity. The network’s new project also includes livestreaming religious services.

“The feature will highlight daily inspiring stories to provide Fox News Media’s audiences with a realm of uplifting content throughout the global coronavirus pandemic. America Together will include stories of volunteerism, charitable efforts and everyday heroism in the face of all the challenges,” the network said in a statement.

While Fox News continues to cover the coronavirus crisis with exclusive interviews with President Trump, agency officials and health professionals, the network is also looking to reach out to viewers in a personal way.

“Various network personalities have also taken to social media to provide support and information to Fox News Media’s audience by encouraging viewers to send in questions regarding the coronavirus, offering advice on working from home and social distancing activities for families,” the network  said.



In addition, anchor Dana Perino is now reading children’s books aloud to support families at home. Fox News is is also streaming religious services from the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City.
