We hear a lot of heart-warming stories at WXXI and here’s one I have to share.

With unfolding radio news, continuous classical music and compelling primetime programs from American Experience to Downton Abbey, what sometimes gets lost in the mix is – arguably – the most important value WXXI provides.

You will often hear talk about WXXI radio providing “driveway moments” – those times when you were listening, and even though you arrived at your destination, you stayed in your car to hear the end of the news story or the symphonic piece. This occurrence is so prevalent, that I have had members come up to me in the supermarket or at a community event to share their instances with me!

While February is keeping the temperature cold outside, the political season has begun to heat up. From the Republican primary process, to Governor Cuomo’s budget battle in Albany, to Kodak’s ongoing bankruptcy situation, you can trust WXXI News will be at the forefront, providing all the information and analysis you will need.

As a fan of WXXI-TV, you may already be aware of our rich history of British dramas. With favorites like Upstairs, Downstairs, Prime Suspect, The Forsyte Saga, Little Dorrit and Pride and Prejudice, we have had members of all generations tuning in for the austere clothing, proper manners and irresistible plotlines of our British dramas.

It’s a new year, and January is a special month at WXXI as we host our annual outreach initiative with our good friends at the Al Sigl Community of Agencies. This is our tenth year hosting Dialogue on Disability: The Herman & Margaret Schwartz Community Series, which celebrates the amazing lives of people with special needs.

As 2011 nears its end, there were countless successful moments at WXXI this year – from great local productions like RIT Big Shot and the preview of our Frank Lloyd Wright Boynton House documentary, The Next Hundred Years, to essential election coverage, debates and a recent forum on the city’s Dropout Dilemma.

If you are one of the countless people who depend on WXXI for your news and analysis, then I have an exciting announcement. WXXI has launched WXXINews.org, a new Web site that makes local news content more accessible for you.

This Saturday, WXXI presents a rare opportunity for viewers to get on the inside of a historical architectural restoration as we present a preview of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Boyton House: The Next Hundred Years as part of an Afternoon of Local Treasures, which begins at 3:00 p.m.

As we move from Thanksgiving to enjoying the rest of the holiday season, WXXI joins in the holiday spirit with new – and classic – favorite television programs to mark our Winter Membership Campaign.
