Support Local News with Your Membership

It may not be second nature to take out a membership or news “subscription” to a radio station, but 97.9 WHAV FM isn’t a typical radio station. It is a publicly owned, nonprofit radio station, delivering more local news, more often than all other sources combined.

The only Haverhill-based news source provides all the news you expect: Haverhill Local News, Region, Education, Crime, Community Spotlight, Business Bulletin, Obituaries and more.

Membership helps pay for reporting the many exclusive and important stories that otherwise would remain untold. Become a member today. It’s tax-deductible.
