BIO: Born and raised and schooled in Manhattan, Ellen Rocco moved to the North Country farm she still lives on in 1971. She has been at the station since 1980; station manager since 1985. Ellen served six years on the NPR Board (tenure ended about 18 months ago), and has been a panelist for CPB, the NYS Council on the Arts, and other media and cultural organizations. She’s at NCPR because it’s great to do good work…in this place. She has never had ambitions to climb the ladder to bigger, better known stations. She works there because she lives there, and is part of that community.

Be the Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including radio, video and journalism.
