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.

WXXI Takes a Healthy Approach

I hope you enjoyed Ken Burns’s latest series, The National Parks: America’s Best Idea on WXXI.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been stopped over the past few weeks by people who watched the series and loved it. 

Great things to come in September

September marks the beginning of the new school year and a renewed focus on educational services at WXXI. So it is with great pride that I share some exciting news. WXXI has won its first national Emmy Award in its 42-year history and it is for one of our children’s productions. Biz Kid$, a WXXI co-production that promotes financial literacy for children, has garnered a Daytime Emmy Award. Though WXXI has won numerous regional and national awards for its programming, this is our first national Emmy and we couldn’t be more pleased!

It's Never Slow Around WXXI

It may be summer, but it's never slow around WXXI.

Exciting changes underway

Welcome to the first edition of my online letter. If you are a member of WXXI and received our former membership magazine, Station Signals, then you have also likely read through my letter each month.
