Albany's WGY Debuts Season Two of Upstate Unsolved Podcast


iHeartMedia Albany's News Radio 810 AM & 103.1 FM WGY has announced the season two debut of the iHeartRadio Original true crime podcast, "Upstate Unsolved," hosted by WGY reporter, Phoebe LaFave. The first episode of season two premieres on October 10 with new episodes available each Thursday on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard. "Upstate Unsolved" is a production of the iHeartPodcast Network.

Season two launches in partnership with the Cold Case Analysis Center at the College of St. Rose and investigates the unsolved murders of Catherine ‘Kate' Blackburn (1964) and Ruth Whitman (1959). While seemingly unconnected, Blackburn and Whitman have one crucial element in common - their cases aren't well known to the public. With the support of the Albany Police Department and the Colonie Police Department, WGY's "Upstate Unsolved" brings these cold cases into the spotlight in hopes of finding justice for these women.

"It's our goal to bring these cold cases out from the shadows because, although time is running out, it's still possible that someone knows something that can solve one or both of these murders," said LaFave. "Everyone deserves to have their truths come to light and I hope season two of ‘Upstate Unsolved' can help shine some light on the untimely deaths of these women."

Host Phoebe LaFave has a passion for true crime. She began her career in the media industry as an intern at iHeartMedia during her senior year at The College of Saint Rose, which lead to an opening as a Reporter in the WGY Newsroom. In March of 2019, the first season of "Upstate Unsolved" premiered focusing on Suzanne Lyall, a Ballston Spa native and University of Albany student who went missing on March 2, 1998.
