FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) WANE 15 is bringing back a popular feature in September, the Daily Pledge of Allegiance. But because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s going to look a bit different this school year.

WANE 15 News Operation Manager Ross Kinsey explains in the video at the top of this story.

Email the video to and be sure to include the teacher’s name, the school and class grade. The videos will be shown during First News Monday through Friday and can also be viewed in a special section right here on
