WGXC Morning Show: Richard Witt
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by Tom Roe in Acra.
A wage board at the state Department of Labor is expected to meet next month to accept a report recommending the overtime threshold be lowered from 60 to 40 hours a week, especially after the state budget included a tax credit to help farmers pay for the increase. Yet Governor Hochul has yet to state her support while the Republican candidate for Governor, Lee Zeldin, opposes. Rev. Richard Witt of Rural Migrant Ministry discusses this decades long struggle with WOOC's Mark Dunlea.
The "WGXC Morning Show" is a radio magazine show featuring local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, reports on cultural issues, a rundown of public meetings and local and regional events, with weather updates, and more about and for the community, made mostly through volunteers in the community through WGXC. The Catskill Makers Syndicate produce the "Better Weather" for the show. Rob Gelles produces the Columbia County history segment "Rob Around The County" and "This Month in History" for the show. And Jack Sencabaugh contributes the "Backtracks in Time" segment about local history. Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. Tom Roe also cuts up local and national news with songs and sounds for the show. At 9 a.m. "The WGXC Daily," with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events, airs. Also tune in for national headlines from the Public News Service on WGXC. Sometimes national, state, or local press conferences, meetings, or events are also broadcast live here.
