Thursday Morning Roundtable

Thursday Morning Roundtable is broadcast on WCNY-FM Sundays at 8 p.m. during the academic year. It’s a weekly public service program, sponsored by Syracuse University’s University College, which features experts speaking on local, state and national issues of concern to the community.

“TMR brings together a variety of business, social agency, educational and civic leaders to learn about and discuss issues of importance to area citizens,” said Sandra Barrett, director of community programs at University College. “Bringing this program to the local public broadcasting station is a perfect partnership in our shared goal to spur discussion of issues and ideas in the community.”
