I’m sure you have been following the battle in Washington for a solution to the debt crisis. As the framework of the plan is put in place, we look on with interest here at WXXI, because the future of public broadcasting may be significantly affected.

I recently received a letter from one of our Honorary Trustees commenting on the article that appeared in the newest issue of Metropolitan Magazine. Though the letter was addressed to me, it could speak to every person involved with making WXXI such an invaluable community resource.

For several years, one of our core service areas has been health. WXXI has been aggressive in helping educate the community about healthier behaviors and has made great inroads to providing resources through our “Healthy You” initiative.

If you are a fan of our OnStage music series, I have some good news! WXXI will once again begin producing more episodes this summer, beginning with a much-anticipated local performance.

Over the last couple weeks WXXI has shot six performances at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, completed production on the eighth season of Second Opinion, presented concerts as part of the Hochstein at High Falls series, provided educational outreach information at the Maplewood Rose Festival -- and won three New York State Broadcasters Association Awards, three Associated Press Awards and two Communicator Awards.

When it comes to this community's health, you will not find a more committed and engaged media partner than WXXI. In fact, this week we will be airing a special Second Opinion episode tackling the controversy of when—and how often—women should be having mammograms.

As we move into June you may be making plans to take in the sounds of this year's Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. If you do, there's a good chance you will see WXXI's production crew there.

This past Friday marked Jim Lehrer's final turn as a regularly scheduled anchor on PBS after 36 years in the job. Though he has steped down officially, he will still continue to moderate the show's news analysis panel with columnists Mark Shields and David Brooks. But for many it was the trusted presence he brought to the seat of one of the most respected news programs on television.

As many in our community begin attending graduation ceremonies at the Eastman Theatre – or are preparing to attend upcoming Jazz Festival concerts there – I invite you to join us for an encore television production showcasing the recently completed Eastman Theatre and the Wolk Atrium.
