                            Dear Friend,

                             April marks the beginning of spring and the scheduled end of the New York State budget
                             process. Both could benefit from more sunshine.
                                    With no warning and no explanation, the Governor’s proposed 50% reduction in
                             State operating aid for public broadcasting is a serious and unprecedented blow (and out
                             of line with other reductions in education). While our local legislative delegation has been
                             extremely supportive of our efforts to restore at least part of the cut, one thing is certain
                             – we will have to absorb a serious reduction in support for educational programs and
services in the coming year. This makes your support – membership, program underwriting, production funding,
and planned gifts – more important than ever (individual giving, at more than $3 million a year, remains our largest
source of revenue).
      In these difficult economic times you have a right to ask if your support is being used wisely and if it’s
making a difference. While budgets may be decided by “three men in a room” in Albany, WXXI’s Karen DeWitt is
there watching every step of the process. Her daily reports on AM 1370 and WRUR-FM keep you informed about
the ways your tax dollars, along with the State’s portion of federal stimulus money, are being spent. Karen is also
a regular contributor to New York Now on WXXI-TV. I hope you agree that in-depth reporting from the State Capital
is a good investment – along with our dues to NPR for award-winning coverage of national and international
events on the radio.
      I trust you agree that our dues to PBS, which help support The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Frontline, Nova,
Washington Week and other public affairs programming are dollars well invested. Additionally, Need to Know, our
weekly television public affairs program, brings you in-depth coverage on local issues, with a special focus on the
economy in recent months.
      How do others view our program investments? WXXI just received two Bronze Telly Awards recognizing
episodes of our national health series, Second Opinion. This program, a partnership with the University of Rochester
Medical Center (URMC), is making a difference in healthcare here in the Rochester area and throughout the
nation. One example – our new Caregiver’s Diary and Resource Guide helps individuals manage their loved ones’
healthcare. This is part of the Second Opinion for Caregivers initiative, supported by a grant from the Jacob and
Valeria Langeloth Foundation. The initiative is designed to empower the more than 50 million Americans caring for a
family member, friend, or loved one. Thirty thousand guides will be distributed to PBS stations across the country to
share with their communities.
      Recently, when an independent producer decided to feature our Rochester Red Wings baseball team in a
13-part series, he asked WXXI to help and present the show nationally. When Chicago’s public television station,
WYCC, put a focus on jazz in March they selected WXXI’s productions from the Rochester International Jazz Festival
as their featured programming. When almost any arts and cultural organization or educational institution in town is
looking for a media partner, they turn to WXXI first – because we believe that when we help another organization be
more successful, it benefits all of us.
      If you made a gift during our recent television “pledge drive” or clicked on to make your
voice heard in Albany, thank you! Your financial support and your advocacy make a real difference. Our “pledge” back
to you is that we’ll continue to work hard to merit your trust, and even in the most difficult of times, stay true to the
mission of public broadcasting. And while we can’t control the weather, our reporters in Washington, Albany and right
here at home will do their best to shed light on the stories that matter to you – every day!

                                                      WXXI was recently awarded a three-year local service grant

                                                      from the Corporation of Public Broadcasting (CPB) to continue its on-going efforts
                                                      to fight childhood obesity and make a positive impact on the health of Upstate New
                                                      Yorkers. WXXI will partner with PBS-affiliate WSkG in Binghamton to help educate
                                                      families across the region about the importance of eating healthy, maintaining a

                                                      New York. With 21% of third grade school children in Upstate New York labeled as
Obesity                                               obese, which exceeds the national rate of 16%, WXXI’s efforts in helping to reduce
                                                      this alarming statistic is crucial.
                                                             WXXI will use the grant money to produce 36 “healthy You” tV segments to
                                                      promote healthy behaviors to school-aged children. the University of rochester
Medical Center will serve as content providers for the segments, which will air on WXXI-tV during Homework Hotline, a live, statewide
call-in show that helps kids with their homework. the segments will also be posted online at for further use by
kids, families and teachers. the entire series of segments will be available on DVD as well, and be distributed to rochester area librar-
ies, neighborhood health centers and other underserved areas identified by WXXI’s community partners.
       WXXI will also host two community forums encouraging discussions on childhood obesity, health, nutrition, and exercise. these
one-hour forums will air on WXXI-tV and WSkG-tV. In addition to the televised forums, WXXI and WSkG will produce three one-hour
radio specials focused on childhood obesity, nutrition and fitness. these programs will air on WXXI-aM 1370 and WSQX-FM 91.5.
       WXXI will also host local “healthy You” workshops for teachers, daycare
providers, and caregivers, arming them with the information and resources
needed to educate students and families on how to ensure healthy lifestyles.
During these workshops, WXXI will distribute more than 200 custom-designed
health education family literacy kits that will be used in the classroom, and sent
home with students to use with their families.

                                     identity. We Shall Remain represents an unprecedented collaboration between
                                     Native and non-Native filmmakers and involves Native advisors and scholars at
                                     all levels of the project.

In honor of Earth Day, April 22, 2009
we’re asking members to consider opting out of receiv-
ing the member magazine, only if they’re not reading
it. If you’re not using your guide, you can do your part
to conserve energy, trees and membership dollars by
canceling your in-home delivery of Station Signals.

If you’re a web user, we’d be happy to give you a link to
an area on our site where you can view the guide online
each month.

Please call our membership office at (585) 258-0200 to stop
in-home delivery of Station Signals, and/or to sign up to receive a
monthly email alerting you to when the guide is posted on our site.
