NEW YORK – News 12 and Spectrum News NY1 today announced they will collaborate on a program to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month airing on October 30 at 9 p.m. The 30-minute special, hosted and reported by News 12 anchor Tara Rosenblum and Spectrum News NY1’s national health reporter Erin Billups will highlight cutting-edge research taking place in the Tri-State area as well as underscore the importance of breast cancer prevention and detection.

“As a Breast Cancer survivor, it is critical that we join together to become a force for awareness and early Breast Cancer detection,” said Kristin Malaspina, Chief Content Officer & SVP Distribution for News 12. “With about 250,000 people being diagnosed with breast cancer a year, our ultimate goal is to drive education that will help to save lives.”
