WSKG Reporters Honored By PRNDI, The New York State Associated Press

WSKG Radio Morning Edition Host/Reporter Gabe Altieri has won two awards from the NYS chapter of the Associated Press. The first was for enterprise reporting (meaning that story didn’t come from a press release or press conference, it came from sources he’d developed on his own). It was about how voters in the Town of Van Etten and the Village of Van Etten were deciding whether to dissolve the town and have it join the larger village. The process was fracturing the community. Gabe’s other award was for a sports feature, an in-depth story on whether sports stadiums financially help or hurt small cities.

Attention WSKG-TV viewers in Cortland and Tompkins counties

WSKG-TV URGES SPECTRUM CABLE
“DON’T DROP WSKG-TV IN TOMPKINS AND CORTLAND COUNTIES”
(Vestal, NY) Spectrum Cable has informed WSKG-TV that it plans to drop the public media TV station from its cable lineup in Tompkins and Cortland counties in the coming weeks. An exact date has not been determined. WSKG President and CEO Greg Catlin says “Spectrum Cable has the right to do this, but we think it’s wrong. Spectrum can continue to carry WSKG-TV in Tompkins and Cortland counties if it chooses, but has chosen not to. Spectrum calls it a business decision.

Ithaca 90.9fm: HD Radio impairment

Equipment failure has temporarily stopped the HD portion of Ithaca’s WSQG 90.9fm. Repairs may take a week or longer… The regular analog broadcast is back to normal operation (but this failure is responsible for intermittent outages heard 1/13 – 1/15). We appreciate your reports of reception difficulties.

President's budget eliminates public media funding

The President’s budget proposes eliminating public media funding. Without this critical seed funding, WSKG may be forced to cut the programs you love and the public services your community relies on. Your community could lose access to educational content for children, emergency communication services, local programming, trusted news and more. Act now to save your stations. Sign this petition urging Congress to continue the essential funding for public media and your local stations.

World channel returns to WSKG line-up

When WSKG replaced WORLD with PBS Kids, we received an unprecedented amount of feedback asking for the return of WORLD. We’re pleased to announce we have added back the World channel to our over-the-air broadcasts. We are working with cable companies to get World back on cable as well. The addition of this fourth channel carries a significant annual cost. If you value the programming on World, please consider making a special donation to support World on WSKG.

WSQX in Ithaca; new programs for weekend mornings

Beginning Saturday, June 11, WSQX will feature a new line-up of weekend morning programming. Years of research has shown that WSQX has had almost no listenership to jazz on Sunday mornings, which means it’s providing nearly no service to our community during that time of day. As a result, we’ve decided to invest in Sunday morning programming and enhance the quality of our service with the addition of news and information programs, such as the radio versions of “America’s Test Kitchen” and “Travels with Rick Steves.” Plus, a new, weekly program, “The New Yorker Radio Hour,” which is already winning popularity among public radio stations nationwide. Saturdays on WSQX, starting June 11
5:00am – World Update (BBC) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p007dhp8
Sundays on WSQX, starting June 12
5:00am – World Update (BBC) http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p007dhp8

Black History Month

WSKG celebrates the achievements of African Americans all year, but since official recognition by the U.S. Government in 1976, there’s been a special focus each February. In 1976, President Gerald Ford encouraged all Americans to  “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Here are some of WSKG’s special programs for Black History Month. WSKG TV | Black History Month on PBS

WSKG TV | Rise of the Black Pharaohs
Around 800 BC, Kush, a little-known subject state of Egypt, rose up and conquered Egypt, enthroned its own Pharaohs and ruled for nearly 100 years. This unlikely chapter of history has been buried by the Egyptians and was belittled by early archaeologists, who refused to believe that dark-skinned Africans could have risen so high.
