Let’s Not Go Back to the Dark Old Days: Keep Local News Strong and Growing

Do you remember what it was like just a few years ago before WHAV launched its expanded local news effort?

The last newspaper office in Haverhill closed and news about growth, crime, education and community all but disappeared. Some even called Haverhill a “news desert.” WHAV’s bold effort—on FM radio, online and in social media—not only shined a light on issues from public safety to school building issues, but news media competition spurred more vigorous reporting all around.

WHAV provides more local news, more often than all other sources combined. That’s what you’d expect from the only Haverhill-based news source. If you’re already a member, thank you for your continuing support.
