About the Public Media Commons

The Dorrance H. Hamilton Public Media Commons at WHYY puts the power of media in the hands of anyone with a story to tell and helps all of us become more discerning media consumers. This ground-breaking new venture is named in honor of Mrs. Dorrance H. Hamilton, whose generous leadership gifts have helped move this project from idea to reality. With training programs for students and teachers, hands-on instruction for WHYY members with an interest in media and a facility that can host and record events for non-profits and business alike, Hamilton Commons opens new avenues of expression to the residents of the Philadelphia region.

The Public Media Commons is a physical embodiment of WHYY's commitment to community engagement. It serves as a hub of media literacy for the Philadelphia area, a gathering place for educators, a hands-on learning environment for students and a venue for performers and lecturers.

William J. Marrazzo is the President and Chief Executive Officer of WHYY Inc.
