Radio news about local radio waves, on both sides of the Rip Van Winkle Bridge and up and down the Hudson Valley:

• New York Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Charles Schumer announced their support this week for the New York and New Jersey Army National Guards’ formation of a combined Cyber Protection Team based in Latham, in Albany County. In a letter to the Army National Guard’s Acting Director, Major General Lyons, the senators urged for swift approval of a proposal allowing the New York and New Jersey Army National Guards to form a joint team focused on addressing the growing cyber security threats in New York and New Jersey. This new team would leverage their existing relationships with the Department of Homeland Security and their extensive training, to focus on combatting increasing cyber security threats to the region’s critical infrastructure and networks. “By vesting this capacity in the National Guard stationed in Latham, this team can provide the military with private sector expertise and the surge capacity that it needs to respond to threats," said Gillibrand in a press release. Currently, state Army National Guard units throughout the country are competing to form ten multi-state Cyber Protection Teams as part of the Army’s efforts to build up its cyber capabilities.

• WAMC Northeast Public Radio donated 765 Eton Crank Radios to veterans in need, raised from their recent $1 million pledge drive. Listeners during WAMC's recent pledge drive could shift their donations to these radios, which are also solar-powered, as well as hand-cranked.
