Join the Public Relations Society of America Blue Ridge Chapter and members of the Shenandoah Club for an in-depth discussion featuring Cardinal News Executive Director Luanne Rife and Executive Editor Dwayne Yancey.

During this luncheon we’ll explore how they see the news industry evolving, how they are addressing the challenges they face, and why they sought out to do things differently under a high-risk, no advertising model.

Cardinal News is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan online news site serving Southwest and Southside Virginia. Their mission is to produce in-depth reporting about the region to improve citizen awareness and political and economic relevancy.

Founded in 2021, Cardinal News is already making an impact with its stories. Cardinal News was recognized by LION Publishers as a finalist for its New Business of the Year, and by the Institute for Nonprofit News as a community champion for our reporting of flooding in Hurley that led to $11 million in state aid.

This event is open to members, guests, and prospective members, but space is limited. Please register to reserve your ticket which will include a seated dinner, presentation, and networking in The Shenandoah Club's main dining room.
