April 6, 2025
Featuring:
Don Alhart
Journalist and Broadcaster

The world-record holder for longest serving broadcast journalist shares his wisdom and observations about today’s news environment.

Moderated by: TBA

What value does local broadcast news deliver to a community? Just how important is it to us to learn what’s going on around us? And what stories do we fail to hear about and why?

It will be almost a full year into retirement when Don Alhart speaks to the Ewing Canandaigua Forum this April 2nd. Like all retirees, he has stories to tell and with long-time friend and co-anchor Ginny Ryan, we will all gain from his wisdom and recollections of a career in journalism.
