From the CEO

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.

During these past 10 weeks, our community has faced an increased amount of changes. We all are seeking some type of normalcy again in our lives. It’s times like these that make me especially grateful to be a part of a public media organization.

As I write this we are experiencing uncertain times. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting all of us in ways we never thought imaginable.
