  • Why The San Francisco Chronicle gave its latest investigation away to other local news outlets
    Late last year, after months of reporting, collecting data and cleaning it up, reporters at The San Francisco Chronicle knew they had a big story. Around the state, they found foster shelters were funneling children into the criminal justice system. Most of the story, however, wasn't in their readership area and was unlikely to be […]

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.

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!
