Virginia’s WHRO-TV/WHRV-FM and Old Dominion University are partnering on civic engagement opportunities, the university announced today (Aug. 12). Cathy Lewis, host of HearSay with Cathy Lewis on 89.5 WHRV-FM, will work with the university’s new Office for Community Engagement on projects such as a series of symposia where business, community, and government leaders and faculty experts and researchers identify challenges to the region and collaborate on potential solutions. “That initiative will utilize WHRO’s broadcasting and video streaming capabilities to further the discussion and engage a broader audience,” the university said in a statement. The station is licensed to a group of 18 local school systems and offers services to the schools including professional development for teachers.
