Syracuse Speaks-Local Journalism in CNY

John Marino

There’s a lot happening in the city of Syracuse and the Central New York region: The Interstate 81 viaduct project, continued recoveryfrom COVID-19, and Mayor Ben Walsh’s Syracuse Surge initiative, just to name a few. And as reporters covering this community and writing the stores that help inform your day to day, it’s important we tell the stories with truth, accountability and equity.

For this episode of Syracuse Speaks, we talk to newsroom leaders and innovators about local journalism in Central New York. What is working? What needs to change? How can we better cover our community?

Joining us for this discussion:

Katie Zilcosky is WAER’s All Things Considered host and features reporter. She also co-hosts WAER’s public affairs show Syracuse Speaks. As a reporter, she focuses on technology, economy, and identity.
