In memory of Betty Strasenburgh, who has passed away, WXXI-TV will rebroadcast this 2017 Norm & Company with her.

In 2017 the longtime Rochester activist and philanthropist Betty Strasenburgh joined WXXI President Norm Silverstein for a special episode of Norm & Company. She talked about her tireless support of numerous arts and cultural organizations in our community, projects she helped bring to fruition as a long-time Rochester resident, and her memoir that chronicles her life's journey. Inspired by her role model, Eleanor Roosevelt, Strasenburgh has in her own words, "worked to make a contribution and tried to leave this world a little better."

A WXXI member for more than 45 years, Betty was a strong advocate for public media in Rochester. An honary trustee, major donor, a campaign supporter and advisor, a production funder and a member of the legacy society, Betty was one of WXXI’s greatest champions.

WXXI remembers Betty Strasenburgh with Norm & Company: Betty Strasenburgh, airing Friday, April 30 at 8:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
