Marc was nominated for his work on WDFH's groundbreaking LGBT youth program, OutCasting. He will also speak about the need for funding for Westchester Public Radio and the upcoming benefit concert on Saturday June 30th.
WDFH is the only public radio station in the lower Hudson valley. Our history has been well documented by The New York Times, The Journal News, The Gazette, The Enterprise, The Westchester County Business Journal, WNBC-TV, and other media. Thanks to a recent signal expansion, WDFH’s signal, at 90.3 FM, can now reach a potential audience of 400,000 people in central and northern Westchester and eastern Rockland. We can also be heard anywhere online at http://wdfh.org.
Unlike most other public radio stations, WDFH is run by volunteers who bring their passions and their vital interest in our local communities into the station’s programming. WDFH produces in-depth public affairs programs such as In Focus and Eyes On Westchester and broadcasts other public affairs programs from independent producers around the country. As the local broadcast affiliate of the Pacifica Radio Network, we air two daily national news programs, Democracy Now and Free Speech Radio News. WDFH also broadcasts a freeform mix of rock, folk, blues, and jazz. We are entirely nonprofit and noncommercial and are registered as a not-for-profit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
