If you’ve driven by the Rappahannock News building on Main Street in Washington, you might have noticed a For Sale sign. As newspapers around the country have fallen on hard times in recent years, many have put their longtime homes on the market. That is not what’s happening in our case.
Thanks to our loyal readers and advertisers, the Rappahannock News is a healthy business. The newspaper has actually not owned its building since returning to local ownership in 2010. Now, the building’s owner has decided to sell the property and we’ve decided to invest in another office in the Town of Washington (more on this in the future).
We’re also investing in expanding our news and business operations. You might have noticed the return of a familiar byline to our pages, that of local writer and former staff reporter Alex Sharp. A new addition to our business team will be joining the paper in the coming weeks.
Thanks for your continued support,
President, Rappahannock Media
