WVIA News has grown quite a bit in the past few months. What started as a small team of 4 has quickly grown to a team of 11 dedicated full time journalists, not to mention our fantastic freelance contributors. The changes will keep coming, too. But what won't ever change is that every decision we make is local.

National Public Radio, like any media organization, should be questioned - even criticized - by its listeners and readers. That is what the free flow of ideas is all about. And that's what happened when a longtime NPR employee published a critical piece about the network's coverage, sparking debate that will surely continue.

We're obviously part of NPR's network, but each member station enjoys editorial journalistic independence. That's the best way we know to cover our communities well, and it's what you can continue to expect from WVIA News. We're so glad you're along for the ride.
