Fighting for Your Right to Know

Studies show the collapse of local newsrooms across the country in recent years has resulted in more secrecy, fewer voters going to the polls and even discouraged candidates from seeking local office. In this darkness, individual communities and legislatures—including right here in Massachusetts—are keeping secrets from the public and hiding behind failed laws that promote a lack of accountability.

WHAV makes local news available to everyone, every day on-air at 97.9 FM, online at WHAV.net, in social media, over cable television in many communities, through podcasts and more. All of this is thanks to WHAV members. If you are not already a member, please support original journalism and keep local news coming from Greater Haverhill’s only public radio station and nonprofit local news service by becoming a WHAV member here.
