In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, there is still good news popping up all over the world.
John Krasinski, known for his role as Jim Halpert in The Office, has started a YouTube channel dedicated to spreading the good.
On March 29, 2020, Krasinski posted his first video to the channel. Done in a broadcast news format, Krasinski’s show, titled ‘Some Good News,’ is meant to share the good things standing out among the virus.
In his introduction, Krasinski stated, “For years now I’ve been wondering why is there not a news show dedicated entirely to good news?”
In an effort to fulfill his own request, Krasinski reached out to his followers on Twitter asking them to send in stories that made them feel good.
“After reading those replies and the incredibly heartwarming stories that came with them, I thought alright, enough is enough world. Why not us? Why not now,” said Krasinski.
And if you’re a fan of The Office, you might even see a familiar face on the show.
