Rising CNY is a new podcast that highlights the Central New York region, its people, places, and things, and helps listeners navigate the area. Hosted by Lekia K. Hill, the podcast is a trusted space for information, education, and inspiration to the people who live and visit CNY. As a community leader, Lekia has built relationships and insights into the CNY community, which we showcase through the podcast
Our mission is to be a trusted source of information, education, and inspiration to people who live and visit Central New York. We wanted to create an inspiring podcast to foster a sense of connection and community among listeners who share similar values or aspirations. By focusing on uplifting stories or ideas, this podcast can help listeners cultivate a more positive and optimistic mindset about CNY and may help listeners advance in their business and careers or pursue new opportunities..
In addition, through our partnership with Lemoyne College's Keenan Center of entrepreneurship, we are providing students with opportunities to develop and enhance their skills in podcasting. The podcast is recorded and edited in the Makers Department media lab at LeMoyne College's Keenan Center of Entrepreneurship. The team includes Doug Hill and students from LeMoyne and HGM Marketing departments. The platform is used to help students develop and enhance their skills in podcasting, and Lekia ensures that students are a part of every process as her way of giving back to the community.
With the recent announcement of Micron Technologies selecting Central NY to build their microchip plant, we intend to follow this development closely and provide information to the public. We are currently at 56 subscribers, but we intend to increase that number significantly once we launch our marketing campaign.
