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!

The summer season proves to be a busy one

As summer winds down, I think the long-held belief that the season is a quiet time for rest and relaxation has been lost on most of us. We all find our weekends' book up quickly and the good weather has us out doing more things than we ever anticipated! It’s the very same here at WXXI – in fact, many of you may have seen us in your travels.

Our volunteers are the lifeblood of WXXI

At WXXI, we strive to develop a healthy and engaged community through our programs and services. One of the ways we measure the success of that mission is through the ardent support of our volunteers who value what we do so much that they give freely of their time. In appreciation of their commitment, we recently had the pleasure of hosting our Annual Volunteer Recognition Reception.
