WGXC Morning Show: Eric Weltman (Audio)
Eric Weltman of Food and Water Watch spoke with WOOC's Mark Dunlea about the climate legislative agenda of the group at the state and federal level. Some State issues include a ban on new gas, the negative climate impacts of cryptocurrency mining, and the need for public power. A Federal priority is the Future Generations Protection Act. Plus, Julia Joern surveys the local media scene. 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 produces the "Hudson Valley Word of Mouth" interview segment every Thursday. 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.
