“New York in the World,” a documentary produced by WRVO Public Media, has been awarded a 2014 regional Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA). The RTDNA has been honoring outstanding achievements in electronic journalism with the Edward R. Murrow Awards since 1971.

On March 22, WRVO Public Media presented Tuned to Yesterday "At the Movies" for the second time with the 1944 classic "Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman." A presentation preceded the film showing, in which host Mark Lavonier took viewers through the history of Holmes on radio (and did a little sleuthing himself).

First, we want to thank everyone who donated during Foneless February and during the first weeks of March. Thanks to these generous contributions, we were able to cut down our spring on-air fundraising to just over two and a half days. You'll only be hearing from us through this Saturday at noon.

If you've already donated, thank you so much, but if you haven't yet please take the time to make a difference today. Here are just a few reasons to donate:

When you think of the month of February, do thoughts of the Super Bowl, Groundhog Day, the Winter Olympics or Valentine's Day come to mind? Here at WRVO, it's all about Foneless February.

It's been a hit so far, so we're keeping it 'foneless' this February. This month, WRVO Public Media is making a silent request for contributions. No interruptions and no ringing phones. We call it 'Foneless February.' Our spring fundraiser is just around the corner and you can help make it shorter by donating now.

Update: WRVO went off the air at 12:00 a.m. and returned to service at 2:00 a.m. Thank you for your patience.

WRVO will be off the air on all transmitters and repeaters beginning at Midnight tonight.  The outage is expected to take no more than a few hours. Engineering is working to fix a wiring problem. Thank you for your patience.

If you have any questions, please call (315) 312-3690.
