Jim Roselle to be featured on ‘Chautauqua People’

Jim Roselle will be the next person featured on the new Access Channel 5 program called “Chautauqua People,” which debuted in July. The program will air at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. each day beginning on Saturday with the last airing on Sept. 6.

Jim Roselle, radio pioneer on Jamestown’s own WJTN radio station, has been broadcasting from the Chautauqua Institution for the past 40 years. A fixture on Chautauqua’s grounds, Jim is a native of Jamestown, and a graduate of St. Lawrence University in Canton. He has been honored for his radio broadcasting accomplishments several times, most recently in 2012 when he was voted into the N.Y. State Broadcasting Hall of Fame, an honor he richly deserved. He continues to host radio programs on WJTN throughout the year and has an encyclopedic memory for facts and faces.

Roselle will be interviewed by Chautauquan Ira Cooperman.

Access Channel 5 is available to cable viewers in the Mayville, Chautauqua, North Harmony, Sherman, Westfield and Portland areas. Viewers should note that all area public access channels have been dropped from Time Warner’s analog service, but can be received on digital service with a converter or on a digital television that has been recently autoscanned.
