WNYT/WNYA have produced two large continuous programs that are children related. They are the Athlete of the Week and STEM. ATHLETE OF THE WEEK. During the school year WNYT/WNYA NewsChannel 13 works in conjunction with Fidelis Health Care to highlight exceptional student athletes in the Capital Region. Two students are highlighted each week during the first quarter, 2019. The STEM program includes stories that relate to science, technology, engineering and math.
