Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:reader],

WHAV’s resources are stretched, providing up-to-the-minute, original local news reporting. As it does everyday on-air, online, in social media, over cable television and in podcasts, WHAV provides more local news, more news that matters and more often.

Last month was the 74th birthday of WHAV’s call letters in Haverhill. It is a great time to support Greater Haverhill’s only public radio station and nonprofit local news service with your membership or extra donation.
