Public Reports & Policies

Annual Reports to the Community We Love to Serve
Through the efforts of many community partners, the hard work of dozens of volunteers, the generosity of supporters, and the tireless dedication of staff, 2016 was a banner year for WSKG. WSKG was founded by the community, for the community—to educate, inform, and entertain. The intelligent programming we offer and the services we provide improve the quality of life in Upstate New York and Northern Pennsylvania. Our goal at WSKG is to increase services to our community year after year. In 2016 we premiered a new local history documentary, Harvest; increased our investment in local news coverage with a new reporter; refocused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education; helped more students on the path to graduation with the American Graduate project; and introduced the Catskills to great new programming on WIOX.

From President & CEO Greg Catlin

Funding for public media is once again being targeted for elimination as it has been at different times in the past. The just-released White House budget eliminates funding to (among others) the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. We need your help to keep federal funding intact. There is strong bipartisan support for public broadcasting in Congress and among voters in every region of the country, including the 21 counties in New York and Pennsylvania served by WSKG. But, we can’t take that support for granted.
