From the President

 

Congratulations to WXXI News for winning two "Excellence in Broadcasting" awards

Please join me in congratulating WXXI News for receiving two “Excellence in Broadcasting” awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association. Our Exited podcast garnered the award in the ‘Outstanding Use of Digital Platforms’ category. Produced by the WXXI News’ Inclusion Desk, the podcast shares the journey of eight young people with disabilities as they transition into adulthood. The Inclusion Desk is designed to inform and transform attitudes and behavior about inclusion and is supported through a grant and partnership between WXXI and the Golisano Foundation. If you haven't listened to this podcast, I encourage you to do so here: http://wxxinews.org/programs/exited.

The second award was for a two-part report on the deadly results of unstable ice across the Great Lakes region. Deadly Winter won in the ‘Outstanding Public Affairs Program or Series’ category. The report, produced by WBFO and WXXI, is part of Great Lakes Today, a regional journalism collaborative to increase coverage of the iconic Great Lakes and the people who live in the region.

This kind of reporting is what makes WXXI a trusted news source, one that you can depend on to provide in-depth stories that keep you connected, concerned, and informed. That’s our pledge to you, and your support helps make it possible!

Supporting Driveway Moments from WXXI

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!
