WXXI and Little Theatre Announce Merger

WXXI Public Broadcasting and the Little Theatre have announced a merger of the two organizations. The merger agreement was approved by both organizations' boards within the past month.

Each organization will retain its own name and raise funds separately, but many administrative functions will be combined according to WXXI President Norm Silverstein. The boards of WXXI and the Little will also merge.
