We are trying to build a strong base of supporters who understand that the current news is harmful and that faith is under attack, sometimes subtle, sometimes blatant, many media outlets present a smug anti-faith face, playing into prejudices that conservative faith-based communities are hateful or stupid. We think the country is headed the wrong way and needs a moral compass; RVA Independent Media employees are conservative on most issues yet they are innovators and developers for change, solutions and answers — exploring new ways to serve the public via digital platforms and improved technologies.

Our mission is to develop and promote a new way to deliver the news which will be more satisfactory for our consumers. In a time of media fragmentation and sound bites, RVA Independent Media focuses on its core: community-based in-depth, positive but quality news. RVA Independent Media on-air and online, RVA Independent Media presents wellness, faith-based, independent journalism that examines and airs diverse perspectives. RVA Independent Media journalists strive for mastery of the narrative form, telling stories in ways that transport the audience to the places where news is happening and introducing the people affected.
