The 2014 broadcast year has come to a close. Here is a look at some updates for shows and events for 2014:
Shows in 2014:
Senior Report with Reed Powers:
Senior Report added 24 new shows in 2014 to finish a 19 year run of production. With the passing of the host and founder of the show, Reed Powers, volunteers continued to produce shows until the end of June 2014 with Guest Host Doc Hamels. At the beginning of July, Chautauqua Sunrise debut in the place of Senior Report. Notable guests for 2014 included Kent Knappenberger, first time winner of the Grammy Musical Education Award and Sally Keir, joined by Chautauqua County Office for the Aging Director Mary Ann Spanos who performed Tai Chi.

July 5, 2014 marked the first episode of Chautauqua Sunrise and the new and fresh feeling show continued to add a total of 26 new episodes in 2014. Chautauqua Sunrise uses a very similar style to that of Senior Report, while not only widening the theme to include more than seniors, but changing up camera positions, set design and the look and feel of the show. Now including Social Media interaction along with the still-available phone calls, views have more ways to interact with Doc and the crew! 2015 scheduling has already begun to take shape and a special event is being planned for late February.
