Local Programming

Many of the programs you hear on WRVO Public Media are produced locally and feature members of the community.

The Campbell Conversations, heard on Saturday mornings at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday evenings at 6 p.m., features notable guests from around the region and beyond. Grant Reeher, host of the program and director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute at Syracuse University, leads a discussion with each guest that aims to go beyond the usual press conference or sound bite.

Tuned to Yesterday is WRVO's flagship old-time radio program broadcasting the golden age of radio each night from 10 p.m. until midnight.

Host Mark Lavonier curates our collection of nearly 7,000 reel-to-reel tapes and well over 20,000 broadcasts. You can hear everything from comedy to mystery, classics to operas and dramatic productions. Programs like "The Whistler," "The Jack Benny Show," "Fibber McGee and Molly," "Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy" and "Gunsmoke" are often heard on-air. Broadcast schedules are made available monthly.

HealthLink on Air

“HealthLink on Air” provides a weekly dose of information on health and medical issues affecting central New Yorkers. The program showcases health professionals and researchers from Upstate Medical University, Upstate University Hospital, the central New York community and those visiting the region who are involved with health care issues and events. Episodes can be heard on-air every Sunday at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. The interviews are permanently archived online.

WRVO also partners with the community to bring listeners special programs like community forums.

Take Care, a conversation on health and wellness from WRVO Public Media, was broadcast from 2013-2019. Archived episodes are available online.
