  • Goodbye, Stephen Colbert, love, NYT

    The New York Times

    “I think it’s gonna leave a hole in my night,” The New York Times’ David Carr says in this farewell video the Times published Thursday. “I really liked getting tucked in by Stephen Colbert.”

    In the video, the Times’ Bill Carter, Nicholas Confessore, William Rhoden, Mark Leibovich, and Carr all talk about Colbert’s show.

    More goodbyes:

    Mashable has a walking goodbye with Google Map Street View studio tour.

    Vulture has lots of famous people saying goodbye.

    And Time has four enemies of Colbert’s saying goodbye, including Suey Park.

  • The winners and losers of Serial’s first season (Ira Glass is on both lists)

    Screen Shot 2014-12-18 at 2.53.43 PM

    Spoiler alert: If you haven’t listened to all 12 episodes of Serial, there are many spoilers below.

    As the debate rages on Reddit and Twitter about whether Serial ended with a whimper or a wallop, perhaps we can find more agreement about the winners and losers of the remarkably successful podcast.

    Here are my picks:

    Winners

    Adnan Syed — Even though host Sarah Koenig stopped short of saying she believes Syed is innocent of killing Hae Min Lee, Koenig said she would have voted to acquit Syed. His hopes for an appeal clearly got a boost from the series.

    To many of us, Syed came across as humble and appealing. He’s not even bitter about his defense attorney, Cristina Gutierrez, who clearly fumbled his case. If his appeal goes forward, his good demeanor can only help.

    Mail Chimp — Whatever the company paid for the sponsorship, it was a bargain. The catchy “Mail Chimp-Mail Chimp-Mail…Kimp” at the start of every show elevated the ad campaign to “Got Milk?” status. Read more

CNY Central Announces Jim Kenyon to Retire

(Syracuse, NY) – December 2nd, 2014 - CNY Central announces investigative reporter Jim Kenyon will retire this month after 38 years with WSTM. In his time at WSTM and CNY Central, Kenyon has made his mark on Central New York by uncovering corruption, fraud and wrongdoing at every level. He has also been front and center during the biggest stories in our area over the last four decades.

Kenyon became a member of the WSTM news team in 1976. Before that he served as a reporter in Columbus, OH. He started his television career in 1970 at WSYR, then known as WNYS. Kenyon grew up in Syracuse, graduating from Henninger High School before going on to SUNY Morrisville.

 

Kenyon has been honored with dozens of awards on the local, state and national level. In 1992 he received a national award from Investigative Reporters and Editors for an investigation into fraud among local trash haulers. It resulted in the prosecution and imprisonment of six executives and 40 county employees pleading guilty to bribery charges. He’s also been honored by the U.S. Justice Department, Associated Press, New York State Broadcaster’s Association and Syracuse Press Club.

Written by Josh Cradduck   
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 11:38
 
UPDATE: Many have been wondering where Joe Galuski, a staple of 570 WSYR's programming lineup has been for the past 2 months. This morning, Galuski appeared on his own show with guest host Mark Wainwright and told his viewers that he has be...en battling cancer. The CNY broadcasting legend had previously dealt with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 1992, he said. However, this re-occurence is more serious. Galuski thanked his many listeners for sending cards and well wishes, but admitted the listeners didn't know what they were sending cards for, as his absense had not been explained by WSYR radio. He decided to put speculation to rest. He will continue with chemotheraphy, he says. Joe has been in the business since 1975 and has hosted 570's morning show since 1998. The Press Club wishes Joe all the best!
