Wendy Bell criticized again for insensitive comments — this time about COVID-19 | Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Ms. Bell questioned whether shutting down the economy was worth it “for less than 1% of our population?”

KDKA Radio host Wendy Bell is facing backlash on social media Wednesday over comments she made addressing the decision to shut down businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ms. Bell’s name was trending on Twitter after a clip surfaced of the former WTAE-TV anchor questioning the government’s decision to risk a potential economic shutdown in order to save a small percentage of lives from the virus. The comments were made on-air in the KDKA Radio studio Sunday while Ms. Bell streamed a 10-minute segment on Facebook Live.
