PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — After being on a ventilator for 12 days due to COVID-19, one Hampton Roads resident is using his second chance at life to create a platform to encourage others.

Deion Campbell started a podcast as soon as he left the hospital in 2021. Now, he has multiple awards and is interviewing celebrities and influencers.
