WHRO has two advisory boards:
The Community Advisory Board and the Williamsburg Advisory Council.
Information on each is provided below.


Community Advisory Board

WHRO Public Media is looking for a few good volunteers who care about Hampton Roads to join our Community Advisory Board.
Applications are due by May 31, 2022. Click here for the application.


Public media has a long-standing commitment to being responsive to the interests of people both in particular localities and throughout the United States. To help ensure that we never lose touch with the people we serve, every public media station is required by law to have a community advisory board. WHRO’s Community Advisory Board (CAB) meets quarterly to share input and ideas on programming priorities and community services. This feedback is important as we strive to serve our community and respond to local issues. Members of the public are welcome to attend and observe these meetings. All meetings are held at WHRO's Norfolk Offices at 5200 Hampton Blvd, Norfolk, VA 23508.

Until further notice, the Community Advisory Board meetings will be held virtually or hybrid.  Please call Nancy Rogan, Community Engagement Officer at 757.889.9415 if you would like to attend and observe.
