For over a week, there were fifteen media outlets including all of the Rochester network affiliates – 8, 10, and 13, Time Warner Cable News, the Democrat & Chronicle as well as national and international media including the New York Times, CNN, and the BBC came or called to the home where Susan B. Anthony lived and worked for over 40 years.
Before the election, CNN Digital sent reporter Tiara Chiaromonte to interview Deborah Hughes the weekend before the election. The CNN digital interview went “viral” with more than 60,000 viewers seeing it on our Facebook page and over SIX MILLION viewers at CNN: http://ow.ly/WkqQ306y0HZ
Also during the week leading up to the election, Susan B. Anthony Museum & House President & CEO Deborah Hughes was interviewed by nyupstate.com from Syracuse and Channel 4 from Buffalo: http://ow.ly/KDa5306y0Op
One of the more poignant interviews during the week leading up to the election was conducted by Berkely Brean of Channel 10. Brean interviewed Dr. Ruth Scott, Lois Geiss, and Deborah Hughes in the Attic of 17 Madison Street, the home of Susan B. Anthony. Dr. Scott served on the Rochester City Council from 1977-89. In 1986, Dr. Scott was elected as the Council’s first President. Scott’s leadership was instrumental as the City moved from a City Manager form of government to a directly elected mayor. Lois Geiss also served as Rochester City Council President. Anthony Museum & House President & CEO Deborah Hughes pointed out that the third floor of the house, known as the garret or attic, the location of the interview was dedicated to the woman’s suffrage movement.
On Election Day there was a flurry of activity at the Museum! From New York City, came a reporter and photographer from the New York Times. The journalists were part of a news team of female journalists who were sent to various locations around the country to report the events of the day. http://ow.ly/nwsx306y1dU
At the end of a very busy day, reporter Solina Lewis from Channel 8 interviewed Deborah Hughes and also did a live report from our parking lot for the 6:00 p.m. News.
