TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

November 19, 2018 at 1:30 pm

Six inches of snow and total chaos fell on the tri-state area last night! Tonight’s ‘Your Metrofocus’ segment will feature your stories on the snowstorm that paralyzed traffic, mucked-up mass transit and caused the commute from hell. A Long Island library clerk, who lost her son to the opioid epidemic, shares her story and her plans to help save a community from the same fate. A veteran hoping to build a family through adoption says she faced bias from adoption agencies. She’ll tell us the story of her struggle and reveal how that painful process led her to pursue a law degree. Though the national unemployment rate remains low, studies show the talent gap among employees continues to grow. As part of our Chasing The Dream initiative, we’ll look at a new program helping underserved teenagers in New York find success in the workplace.
