Cayuga Media Launches Local Online News Site Cortaca Today


Saga Broadcasting's Cayuga Media Group recently launched an online news & information site tapping into the power of their ten stations in Cortland and Ithaca, NY. Cortaca Today aims to bring news, information, and entertainment to the primary geographic areas of Tompkins and Cortland counties. The site features local news, weather, sports, obituaries, health and wellness, and many other components to connect the community.

"We have built a wonderful product that consumers can easily access from computer, mobile, and tablet -- and soon through a simple app." said Cortaca Today Editor in Chief Maddie Cavataio. "We also have a direct relationship with legendary News Talk WHCU Radio, which gives us both the ability to share news and expand conversations online and/or on air as needed."

"It's extremely important that our citizens have access to information and news that is honest and local and that it connects them to the region that we all call "home," added WHCU News Director Joe Salzone. "Both Tompkins and Cortland County are connected in many ways. From the main road travel of Route 13 to the colleges and universities that are so important to the region, and the people that live and work here. We can now connect seamlessly on air and online."

"We have gotten excellent ideas and feedback from many trusted people in our community and will continue to work hard to expand this site for our Tompkins and Cortland counties," said Cayuga Media President Chet Osadchey. "WHCU and its professional radio news team bring news to the region every 30 minutes. Our ability to promote across all our stations towards a single online source will have an immediate and ongoing benefit to all."

Located at cortacatoday.com, an app will soon be available in the Apple store. Cortaca Today is one of the eighteen online news sites that Saga Broadcasting will launch this year.
