Annual Report to the Community 2016

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.

Annual Report + Local Content and Service Report to the Community 2014

Thanks to the hard work and contributions of countless volunteers, members, and community partners, 2014 was a memorable year at WSKG. With consideration of input from our community and the changing landscape of communication and media, we made a few changes to the way WSKG operates and delivers content to our listeners and viewers. The year 2014 marked a year of reorganizing with a focus on four areas of public interest – history, arts, news and youth. Our goal was to connect our listeners and viewers to national and local items of interest through both traditional and emerging digital delivery systems and, by doing so, make a positive impact on the community and your quality of life. Thanks to your support, WSKG was also able to increase its service in new communities.
