RCTV/WXIR Vs. the Coronavirus
Recently, most of us have been focused on the Coronavirus and its impact.
As a community public access TV and radio station, we had
hoped to remain open, so community members could continue broadcasting and sharing messages, news and music with our community.
In light of news that has come out about the virus, and decisions made by Mayor Warren, County Executive Bello and Rochester City School District over this past weekend, we have made the difficult decision to close the station Indefinitely, to ensure the health and safety of our entire community of Members, Radio Personalities, Producers and Staff.
The RCTV building is closed until further notice. Weekly updates will be provided on Fridays via our websites, facebook, instagram pages and our newsletter. We will also plan to share reliable resources and information that may be useful to members of our community.
Both our TV and radio signals will remain on the air and continue broadcasting on our regular schedule.
Everyone's health and safety is our principle concern.
Because we will continue to program both the TV and radio, if you are able to create your programming at home and send it to us, we will make sure it gets on the air.
To submit your TV program, please send an MP4 file to Rick Osborne via email at ROsborne@RCTVMedia.org. You may also drop it off at the station between 10 am and 12 noon, during which time, someone will be at the station. Please note that we will
be open for editing, TV or Radio production, only for dropping off shows.
Radio producers are requested to read the information below from Rashida Washington.
Please note that all classes and workshops for the immediate future have been postponed. If you have registered for a class or workshop, you can receive a refund, or elect to take it at a later date.
During this challenging and unprecedented time, our thoughts are with each of you, for the safety and health of you and those you love.
