WCVE Continues Nearly Forty Years of General Assembly Reporting
Since 1976, the Community Idea Stations has been reporting news from the Virginia General Assembly and that tradition continues today on 88.9 WCVE Richmond as the legislature comes back to session. Daily anchored reports also begin on WCVE PBS and WHTJ PBS beginning Friday (1/16). All audio and video segments will now also be available online at ideastations.org/news and through social media.
Assembly 2015, anchored by WCVE News Director and local anchor of NPR’s Morning Edition, Wayne Farrar, airs at 7:45 a.m. weekdays on 88.9 WCVE. WCVE will also dedicate a portion of its afternoon radio programming for coverage from the capitol. On WCVE PBS and WHTJ PBS, Capitol Events will air at least twice per weekday evening.
The Virginia Trial Lawyers Association has sponsored Assembly since 1993. In 2013, the Medical Society of Virginia also signed on to sponsor the radio program as well as provide production funding for Capitol Events.
