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 Times, they are a-changing

If you can believe all the hype about Apple’s new tablet computer, the “iPad,” it’s yet another product ready to “change the world.” Of course, it’s hard to write off Apple. They do come up with world-changing ideas. Whether we have an iPhone or another “smart phone,” we’re all connected in ways that would have been hard to imagine a few short years ago (after all, the iPhone has only been around for three years)!

Earning your trust

You will often hear us say during membership campaigns that “we work to earn your trust every day.” It’s a phrase that we do not take lightly. Though we receive your endorsement through your membership gift, we look to validate that support throughout the year. From in-depth news stories to inspiring arts programs to extending our community reach, you can always rely on WXXI to make a positive difference every day.  Some of our latest activities at the station certainly demonstrate that.

WXXI invites Governor Paterson to its studios on January 26

Dear Friend,

With the Legislature back in session debating the recently released New York State budget, WXXI’s Center for Public Affairs has been working to bring you the news, analysis and behind-the-scenes details that you’ve come to expect from WXXI.  With reports from Karen DeWitt at our Albany News Bureau, interviews with key legislators by Bob Smith on 1370 Connection, and comprehensive reports from WXXI’s own local news team, you’d be hard pressed to find as extensive and compelling coverage on the topic from any other media source in the region.
