From the CEO

I don’t know about you, but November is the time of year when I start thinking about the holidays—something I know many people are looking forward to as a bright spot in the midst of what has been a long, difficult year.

As I write this, school has started back for students across Virginia, whether through virtual or in-person classes, and parents and teachers are facing a new “normal” that has lasted longer than any of us could have foreseen.

This time of the year in the Hampton Roads region usually means a return to classrooms for teachers and students, but as I write this many of the school systems in our area have chosen to begin their academic year with virtual instruction due to concerns about COVID-19.

In our last two issues, we’ve been taking you behind the scenes to meet some of our staff and learn more about what their departments do. This month, we are featuring our Production team—the producers, editors, videographers, hosts and studio staff members responsible for many of the programs we bring you.

As you see from our cover story, in this month’s issue we are highlighting our Radio and News staff. These dedicated folks have been working hard to keep things running smoothly during the pandemic.
