Hey, why aren’t the News 3 Now anchors wearing masks?

We want to make sure we are transparent about our own mask policy at News 3 Now.

Our staff has been wearing masks inside our building for weeks now, and that includes the anchors and reporters in the newsroom.

Anchors and reporters take their masks off when they go on-air to make sure you can hear and understand us.

According to the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association, Public Health Madison and Dane County created an exemption for broadcasters.

We will continue to wear masks on our way to the studio and put them on when we need to be near each other. But we’re still trying to stay distant from each other as much as possible.

Our crews also continue to clean everything in the studio between shows.
