WJFF Radio Catskill is pleased to announce that Adam Weinreich will assume the role of General Manager and Development Director. Adam has been with WJFF since 2009 when he moved to the area from Keene, New Hampshire, to serve as Assistant Station Manager. Since April, 2013, he has been acting as Interim Station Manager. “In his years at WJFF, Adam has served in almost every capacity. It would be difficult to imagine a person more familiar with the workings or WJFF, more in tune with its mission, and more capable of leading the radio station into the future,” stated Sonja Hedlund, president of the Board of Trustees.
“As Station Manager I will strive to uphold the station's mission, to strengthen and evolve our position in the community and on the air and to foster and grow relationships with our volunteers, our donors and the communities we serve,” responded Adam in his letter of acceptance.

Earlier this summer, WJFF's Program Committee was exploring a series of schedule changes to allow Free Speech Radio News (FSRN) to return to the weekday lineup as a response to listener reaction to its removal earlier in the year.
Shortly after the PC started its work to return FSRN, the program was forced to shutter its operation due to financial difficulties. Recently, however, the team at FSRN has announced its intent to return to regular production, charging stations individually on a sliding scale. WJFF's PC has made a statement indicating their excitement to return the show to the lineup once production begins again.
Anyone wishing to help WJFF continue its mission to broadcast programs like FSRN to our listening community can contribute by clicking the "Yes, I'll Pledge!" button on the top-left of our homepage, by calling 845-482-4141 with a Visa or Mastercard, or by mailing a check to: WJFF Radio Catskill, P.O. Box 546, Jeffersonville NY 12748.
On September 12th the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) released their report on an examination of the grants awarded to WJFF for fiscal year 2011.

WJFF's current management and trustees are committed to complying fully with the recommendations made by the OIG.
