For those who work in the sports world in Wisconsin, Drew Smith is a familiar name. Smith, now a professor at Kansas State University, was a sports reporter and eventual Sports Director at FOX 11 in Green Bay. In early March he took a trip to England, and when he came back he started to feel ill, and found out he had the coronavirus.

Since then, he has been in and out of the ICU, and is now on the path to recovery, one he says may take a couple months.


He joined Bill on Tuesday to talk about his battle, his recovery, and more:

- How was he exposed to the virus?

- What were his symptoms?

- What should we the public be doing?

- What is the treatment for COVID-19? 

Listen to Bill and Drew's fascinating conversation below!
