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!
