WVIA News is independent local news for people, not for-profit.


WVIA Public Media exists to educate, inspire, entertain, and foster citizenship, diverse cultures, and perspectives to nurture community.

WVIA News strives to meet this mission by furnishing individuals with the relevant, civic information needed for thriving families, neighborhoods, and cities.

WVIA News is filling critical information needs reporting on issues that impact the quality of life in our Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania communities. WVIA is the only locally-owned and operated public media station serving our community.
