Watch Night, airing Wednesday December 31 at noon on AM 1370 and WXXI-FM HD 91.5-2, is a vigil kept on the last night of the year in services that are thoughtful, solemn, soulful, joyous and celebratory. Congregants sing hymns, share testimonies and give thanks, offer up problems and mistakes of the old year and anticipate the blessings of the New Year. Hosted by Howard Powell, the program showcases this observance and highlights its unique, historic meaning for African American churches.
