SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A new broadcast and education center adds to the revitalization of the near Westside of Syracuse.
WCNY opened its new facility to the public Wednesday with tours of the building. The education center features several programs, including Enterprise America, which officials say is New York's first hands on, experience based learning program. It is a program the company's president is very proud of.
"And to allow them to understand how to be entrepreneurial and to learn how to run businesses in the 21st century using science, technology, engineering, math, writing and civics and to be better citizens, I mean, what more can you ask for? And to do that here, I think that's amazing," said WCNY President and CEO Robert Daino.
An open house was also held for teachers and parents, giving them more insight into the program.
