Unemployed? WCNY wants you

WCNY is looking for unemployed persons to act as the studio audience in a live, televised panel discussion regarding the current economic crisis in Central New York.

"Surviving Unemployment: A Town Hall Meeting" airs July 9 at 8 p.m. on WCNY 24.1 and will be hosted by WCNY's "Financial Fitness" host J. Daniel Pluff.

The panel will consist of experts in the labor and financial fields. The discussion will focus on what services are available to those that are unemployed, the process of filing for unemployment and how to be successful while in the job market. The program will also discuss the emotional toll unemployment can take, as well as the financial problems the jobless face when their income is significantly reduced.

If interested in attending as a live studio audience member, email your name to cathy_stevens@wcny.org with "Surviving Unemployment: A Town Hall Meeting" in the subject line or call 315.453.2424 ext. 268.

Audience members are required to arrive at WCNY Studios in Liverpool on July 9 at 7:30 p.m. and stay until the program's conclusion at 9 p.m. If participants would like to submit a question to the panel include your name, town of residence, and question in your e-mail.

Viewers can also participate live during the show via phone 1.800.451.2414 or 453.2414, Myspace, Facebook, or Twitter. Links to the WCNY social networks are as follows: www.myspace.com/wcnytv, www.facebook.com/wcnyconnected and www.twitter.com/wcny.
