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.

Striving to be the trusted media partner and the best public broadcaster

I recently spoke to the Rochester Rotary Club about what’s happening “behind the scenes” at WXXI – and what the future holds.  I thought you might be interested in some of the highlights: 

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.
