New year begins with lots of good news for the channel
Economic turmoil, political chaos, a frightening global pandemic, an overdue social justice movement and more #metoo revelations, murder hornets and wild fires, masks, social distancing, remote work, online school and isolation.
Though many uncertainties remain for 2021, to be sure, most of us are just glad 2020 is over. There’s something satisfying about packaging up the past in a neat little 12-month box and putting it away to focus on the year ahead.
