BUFFALO, N.Y. – WNED’s Innovation Trail hosted an hour-long radio talk show at the We Live NY Summit at Cornell University in Ithaca, N.Y. on March 25. Devoted to showcasing young leaders in New York, the Summit attracted more than 500 young professionals interested in learning how to build their careers in the state. The radio program, part of Innovation Trail’s ongoing “Innovation Conversation” series, focused on what New York and its towns and cities can do to retain young professionals. “Innovation Conversation: Will You Stay or Will You Go?” airs on WNED-AM 970 on Friday, April 1 at 1 p.m.
A co-production of public broadcasters WSKG in Binghamton and WXXI in Rochester, the program features a revealing conversation with Summit attendees, hosted by WSKG’s Crystal Sarakas. Panelists include Jeremy Cooney, a Rochester-based attorney and consultant on nonprofit communications issues; Dominic Frongillo, deputy town supervisor, Town of Caroline; and Omar Sanders, financial analyst with the Binghamton Economic Development Office.
