WXXI and the City of Rochester launch "What's Good Rochester"

You may have heard about a new multimedia effort called “What’s Good Rochester” that we are launching in partnership with the City of Rochester. The initiative invites filmmakers, journalists, organizations and others looking to tell Rochester’s story to submit community-created videos and photographs highlighting positive and interesting aspects of life here.  The content will be shared on the City’s websites and social media outlets, as well as WXXI’s online and broadcast channels. This effort will replace CityWise, a program that was broadcast on the City’s government access channel, which WXXI has managed for more than 25 years. We look forward to sharing the many wonderful community stories that are waiting to be told and hope you’ll consider participating!

That is, unless you have been tuning in to public broadcasting. WXXI has been the home for civil discourse and balanced information about the races that are most relevant to you.

WXXI launches Innovation Trail, a major journalism initiative

If you have been listening to the radio lately, you have no doubt heard reports from the Innovation Trail emerging in our news stories. In fact, you may have caught yourself listening even more intently as topics like turbine wind power and the Marcellus Shale “hydrofracking” endeavors were discussed in fascinating depth.
