WHAV has been named the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce’s August Business of the Month

Chamber President and CEO Dougan Sherwood cited the public radio station and nonprofit news service’s expanded local news coverage during the coronavirus pandemic.

“WHAV is really where I get most of my local media, local news coverage, and we’re just so grateful. So, we were happy to recognize you our August Business of the Month,” he said.

Sherwood also recognized the significant fundraising challenges WHAV is facing during the COVID-19-induced recession.

“I have some sense of how difficult it is to run a radio station, particularly one in this day and age. I want to recognize, again, that we are so fortunate to have you here in Haverhill,” he added.

Sherwood, who appeared recently on WHAV’s morning show, took time to discuss the Chamber’s upcoming Restaurant Week. The seven-day event takes place Friday, Aug. 21 through Thursday, Aug. 27. The Chamber is again offering its “Dining Passport” to guide patrons around the city. It is available online and at local establishments. Those who wish to learn more may visit haverhillchamber.com or call 978-373-5663.

Besides WHAV.net, WHAV’s “Merrimack Valley Newsmakers” podcasts are available via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, Google Podcasts, TuneIn and Alexa.
