We’re discussing the state of local journalism, and we want YOU to join the conversation. Join us at any one of these events!

Join us as WHRO News presents a series of News Pubs across Hampton Roads.

Grab a beer, hang out with your friends, and learn about news coverage in Hampton Roads. The wellbeing of a community is influenced by the content and quality of local journalism.

In these informal gatherings, you’ll hear from local journalists.

  • Local journalism is for YOU!
  • Be “in the know” about what’s new in local reporting.
  • Come meet your local journalists.
  • Share with us the most important issues you are seeing in your community—what do you want to read about?
