ABC News Radio interviewed William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine and health policy, about the recent development of polio-like symptoms in children infected with Enterovirus D68. The story was also reported by WKRN, Channel 2, and WWTN-FM (Nashville, Tenn.).

WZTV, Channel 17, aired a report about the political groups garnering public support for the pass or fail of the proposed Amendment One set for the November election. The report referenced the Vanderbilt Poll, which found the majority of Tennesseans oppose the amendment.

WWTN-FM (Nashville, Tenn.) reported on a Peabody study that found only 39 percent of the teachers currently support the Common Core curriculum, a shift from 60 percent the previous year.

WTVF, Channel 5, reported defense attorneys for two of the former Vanderbilt football players charged in a rape last June on campus have filed a motion to sever the defendants so they may stand trial separately.
