Coxsackie resident Maeve McCool, from CREATE, the arts council for Greene, Columbia, and Schoharie counties, is a guest on the "Greene Nation" segment with hosts Mabel Bermejo and Leslie Ritter. McCool discusses the grants available from the arts council. And this Sunday there will be the region’s first Latinx festival to celebrate Hispanic heritage and culture. Joining us to talk about it is David Quituisaca, community navigator at the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement. And Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees update listeners on what's new in movie theaters.

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. Julia Joern produced the "Hudson Valley Word of Mouth" interview segment each week. The "WGXC Congressional Report" also airs here. 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. At 10 a.m., national headlines from Public News Service are on WGXC. Sometimes national, state, or local press conferences, meetings, or events are broadcast live here.
