(Ithaca, NY) – News / Talk 870 AM, 97.7FM WHCU radio completed a milestone broadcast with the 800th airing of “All Things Equal”.
All Things Equal is a weekly program on 870 AM & 97.7 FM News/Talk WHCU Tuesday mornings at 8:35AM. The show features in-depth conversations on diversity, equity, and-or sustainability, with a focus on solutions and common ground.
“All Things Equal” has now aired consecutively for 16 seasons and is hosted by Gary Stewart. AVP Community Relations at Cornell University. The show emerged from a series of community conversations that pointed to the need for steady and productive dialogues on a year-round basis, not just in the aftermath of a crisis. This popular show has touched on everything from new equity strategies, local affordable housing, employment challenges and sustainability.
All Things Equal has received special awards for achievement in Electronic Communication and Interactive Media from SUNYCUAD, The New York State Broadcasters, and was nominated for the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation’s (NABEF) Celebration of Service to America Award by a coalition of community members led by the Tompkins County Chamber. Off of those nominations, Lynette Chappell Williams, AVP for Workforce Diversity & Inclusion at Cornell spoke of All Things Equal: “The show has been a voice of education and encouragement, and taken on difficult topics with grace and professionalism, providing an opportunity for awareness and civil discourse about diversity on campus and in the community. A true change agent, we would not be this far ahead in creating an inclusive environment without the great work that All Things Equal has so successfully accomplished.”
The show is currently sponsored in part by: Cayuga Radio Group, Cornell University, Wegmans, Tompkins Cortland Community College, Cayuga Health, Ithaca College, and Midstate Basement.
