Special COVID-19 coverage from WXXI News continues

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to be an unprecedented crisis. I hope that our work keeping the community well informed with the latest official information is of comfort. We are proud of the many ways that WXXI is helping our community to weather this emergency.

For example, WXXI News is doing an incredible job in covering the coronavirus and how it has affected our community. This includes the daily conversations on Connections with Evan Dawson, coverage of Governor Cuomo’s briefings, our LIVE Forums on WXXI-TV (including our second one airing Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. that explores reopening the region’s economy), and our daily news reports from the front lines. In fact, in the last month, four of our local news stories on COVID-19 have run nationally on NPR. 

I hope you agree that our dedicated reporters have been doing exceptional work. It should come as no surprise that WXXI News recently received the coveted Edward R. Murrow Award for their first collaborative news story with CITY Newspaper. Congratulations to WXXI News host/reporter Beth Adams, WXXI News photojournalist/ videographer Max Schulte, and CITY Newspaper editor David Andreatta. They were all recognized for their investigative reporting on the allegations of abuse of a former paperboy by a supervisor at the Democrat & Chronicle a number of years ago. It was not an easy story for any reporter to cover, yet the team handled it with great sensitivity and professionalism.
