WXXI’S INNOVATION TRAIL WANTS TO HEAR YOUR KODAK STORY
Join us at the Rochester Public Market Saturday, January 21

Rochester, NY (January 17, 2012) – On Saturday, January 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. WXXI’s Innovation Trail team will be at the Rochester Public Market to collect Kodak stories from the community. Whether you’ve lived in Rochester your whole life, or just moved here, you or someone you love has a connection to the company. Join us at THE YARDS gallery space above the Flour City Bread Company at the market to share your story. To reserve a time slot on January 21, email innovationtrail@wxxi.org. You can also follow @innovationtrail for announcements about open spots throughout the day on Saturday, or just stop in at THE YARDS.

As the Eastman Kodak Company struggles to reinvent itself, WXXI wants to talk to people about how Kodak has affected them personally, and capture the profound impact that the photo giant has had on Rochester. WXXI will record audio and/or video versions of these stories for possible use on WXXI radio, TV, and web productions. To learn more, visit: <http://innovationtrail.org/>.

The Innovation Trail, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), is a collaboration of five upstate New York public media outlets led by WXXI, and including WNED (Buffalo), WRVO (Syracuse/Oswego), WSKG (Binghamton) and WMHT (Albany). The Innovation Trail provides in-depth reports about the innovative technologies, businesses, and policies that are helping rebuild the region’s economy. You can see the Innovation Trail’s reporting at http://www.innovationtrail.org/.
