Last Thursday, Bret Baier nominated Norah O’Donnell and Jon Karl for the #CombatCovid19Challenge. The CBS Evening News anchor accepted the challenge, and on Friday, she and her husband Geoff stopped by the D.C. child and family-focused nonprofit Martha’s Table to donate 15,000 gloves to the organization.
O’Donnell went on nominate her colleagues at CBS This Morning. Gayle King later accepted the challenge, and went on to donate 1,000 meals to essential workers in Harlem.

#COMBATCOVID19 CHALLENGE: @bretbaier challenged me to do something good for people helping to fight the coronavirus. So today @chef_geoffs and I donated 15,000 gloves to the wonderful people at @marthastable in DC. Many thanks to @feedthefightdc and @supplylovedc for helping connect us. UP NEXT? I nominate my @cbsthismorning friends @gayleking, @tonydokoupil and @anthonymasoncbs 🙏❤️
A number of Fox Newsers participated in the #CombatCovid19Challenge, not limited to Baier. In fact, the network’s No. 1 host, Sean Hannity, bought 500 Yankees tickets for New York City healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic, after being nominated by his colleague Ainsley Earhardt to participate in the challenge.
The Fox News host said he connected with Yankees president Randy Levine and owner Hal Steinbrenner, who chipped in another 500 tickets.
