Throughout the day, UWSWA will feature its partner agencies, internal programs, award winners, sponsors, and pacesetters. During all newscasts including Studio 10, there will be guests appearing to talk about all things UWSWA. In addition to the television broadcast, Fox 10 and UWSWA will each host live streamed segments on Facebook.
