CITY is back on newsstands!

We are excited that CITY News is back in publication this month with the launch of a new monthly magazine. At the end of March, we had to make the difficult decision to suspend printing the weekly CITY Newspaper and transitioned all stories and reporting online to roccitynews.org. After a great deal of planning, CITY is back in print – only now with the integration of the WXXI Program Guide into the publication. Next month – and every month moving forward – you will receive CITY with a special section dedicated to WXXI, where we’ll share programming and event content you’ve enjoyed in the Program Guide for years.

COVID-19 has forced us to work differently and to be creative – and this move to unify our efforts is the best way for us to maximize budgets and staff. WXXI looks forward to extending and strengthening our partnership with CITY and we know you’ll enjoy the stories, photography, and information arriving at your door each month.
