WGXC Morning Show: Laura Shindell
90.7-FM in NY's Upper Hudson Valley and wgxc.org/listen everywhere
Hosted by Tom Roe in Acra.
The “Iroquois” Pipeline Company wants to drastically increase the amount of gas they push through their existing 37 year old “Iroquois” pipeline, which runs from Northern New York (including the Capital District) to Long Island and NYC. In order to push more gas through the aging pipeline, they are applying to build four compressor stations along the route of the pipeline - in Athens in Greene County and Dover in Dutchess County, and Brookfield and Milford in CT. NYS DEC is holding a hearing on Tuesday, Jan. 31. Laura Shindell of Food and Water Watch talks 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.
