During the last 30 days, 131,391 unique visitors came to WHAV.net 12 million times for local news not found elsewhere, according to independent Cloudflare. Add FM radio and social media audiences and it becomes clear WHAV is meeting local demands.

Unlike other media, WHAV is a non-profit, public radio station and relies on listeners and readers to pay for the news and operating expenses. Help balance the budget on this last day of the fiscal year with your membership.

As the only Haverhill-based news source, WHAV brings you more news than anyone about the critical issues facing residents—crime, schools and pocketbook matters like taxes and fees. News sheds light on stories that otherwise would go unreported, and empowers residents to act in their own best interests. Your WHAV membership pays for itself many times over and a better value than other subscriptions.

As Tom Bergeron says, “I started at WHAV in 1972 and look, WHAV is still here. But, it won’t be if you don’t help support it…keep us going.”
