I would personally like to recognize the late Fred Straus, above, former head of White Plains Public Access TV for his confidence in the program in 2001 and enabling it to be fresh and current once a week. Thanks too, to Jim Kenny for his managing a smooth transition to WPTV new professional studios in the White Plains Library, and his continued support of WPTV producers during the covid epidemic. I also salute invaluable contributions of Keith Baker, Rita Santos and Lynn Storey and Gary Stukes of previous years for their cooperation and significant expansions of the program content to include video, sound clips and expansion of story coverage on a timely, underpressure atmosphere, always courteous professional and dedicated.
