WGXC Morning Show: Monica Byrne, Jeff Economy, Alanna Medlock, Rob Saffer (Audio)

Jul 01, 2020
In the first hour we will hear from Hudson business owner Monica Byrne (Atelier Roquette) about the Hudson Shared Streets initiative, feedback on the recent test weekend and the business community's recommendations for improving the program. In the second hour, a conversation with WGXC volunteer programmers Rob Saffer (“Overlooked”), Alanna Medlock (“There There”) and Jeff Economy (“Snackpoint Charlie”) about sheltering in place and broadcasting from “an undisclosed location,” using new technology, programming during a panedemic, how their local communities are handling COVID-19 and their thoughts on what amounts to our President fomenting racial and political unrest.

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. Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. 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. Tuesdays the show is live from HiLo on Main St. in Catskill.
