It's our spring on-air fundraiser! Join us as we broadcast all of your favorite programs, share stories of how public radio affects us, and why we value the NPR news and programming heard every day on WRVO.
We'd also like to take this time to thank you, our listeners. Your generous support during the month of February has helped us cut down our spring on-air fundraiser to just three days. Thank you for making 'Foneless February' a success.
There will be a short power interruption on the SUNY Cortland campus this morning. This will cause WSUC 90.5FM to be off the air starting at 7 a.m. We will remain off the air in the Cortland area until power is restored. The outage is not expected to be long-term.
You can continue to stream WRVO online, on your smartphone or tablet device.
On January 1, 2013, the WRVO Public Media program schedule will include the following changes:
TheCampbell Conversations, WRVO's interview series hosted by Campbell Public Affairs Institute director and Maxwell School of Citizenship professor Grant Reeher, is moving from Saturdays at 4 p.m to Sunday evenings at 6 p.m.
We've got quite a few specials this year to get you into the Thanksgiving spirit.
Earth Eats | 10 a.m.
We'll kick off Thanksgiving Day with an hour long special from Earth Eats (a program about local food and sustainable eating that is normally heard each Saturday at 4:30 p.m). Earth Eats Thanksgiving is about real food and green living, a program of planning and preparing a terrific Thanksgiving meal with turkey, other courses, and some vegetarian options.
Thanks to all who contributed during WRVO's Fall Fundraiser. Records were broken, new levels of support were achieved, and WRVO Public Media assures you we will continue to have the best programming available anywhere through 2013. Your support is critical, and you came through again. WRVO is, truly, Member Supported. Thanks again.
The Campbell Institute of Public Affairs at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University presents the second in a series of debates on timely issues of public importance, with a fresh, provocative format.

All program changes take effect Monday, June 18, 2012.
Throughout the year we examine the WRVO Public Media program schedule. Using Arbitron data and other audience research we evaluate programs to assess their popularity and identify weaknesses that offer opportunities to refresh the schedule. Because the WRVO Public Media audience is continually evolving we have a responsibility to bring new programs into the mix to encourage listening among those new to public radio just as we continue to present long-time favorites.
