Elections and Debates Ramping Up

With the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and the Olympics now behind us, the election race takes center stage and WXXI News will be with you the whole way. From local news stories and guests on Connections with Evan Dawson to reports from Karen DeWitt in Albany and national news from NPR and PBS — WXXI has you covered. Our fair, balanced and respectful reporting will help guide the way and provide you the information you need to make an informed choice on Election Day. To that end, WXXI will be hosting a September 7th Voice of the Voter Debate between the two Democrat candidates (Harry Bronson and Rachel Barnhart) for Assembly District 138. More details will be coming, but WXXI is proud to continue being a leader in local public affairs.  

And if you haven't done so already, I encourage you to sign up for our free Daily News Update where you'll get updates on what's happening locally, around the state, and beyond. http://interactive.wxxi.org/enews

Going OnStage with Rochester Area Music

If you are a fan of local music, you’ve had a great summer to hear performers in clubs, on streets and at festivals throughout the area. From the Rochester International Jazz Festival in June (WXXI recorded nightly for our next Jazz Festival series), Bands on the Bricks at the Public Market (WXXI was there taping The Lou Graham Band concert), The GrassRoots Festival (WRUR and WITH hosted a live remote from there), East End Festival or Park Ave Festival – not to mention the open mic nights in venues across Rochester – this has been a spectacular music season.

Many hands do great work

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.
