Before You Go…


If you believe, as WHAV does, that an informed public makes for better neighbors, employees, volunteers, customers, leaders, voters and citizens, we have a small favor to ask.

Unlike others, WHAV makes its journalism available to all. If you’re not already a donor or member, WHAV needs your ongoing support to do its job. The news media is hurting with thousands of outlets closing across the country. Local news has suffered the most. While we may not always agree on what event should or should not have been covered, WHAV’s philosophy is to err on the side of disclosure. If you share a belief in these principles, help WHAV to continue being Greater Haverhill’s most trusted, reliable and thought-provoking source of news—whether on-air, online, over cable television or in social media.
