The Staunton Observer is a monthly community journalism magazine written and produced by WQSV’s journalism volunteers. This half-hour show presents feature stories on what is going on in Staunton and the surrounding Shenandoah Valley. Our pilot show includes features about the Middle River Clean-up, Hunger in Staunton, and the Staunton Makerspace. These stories were recorded, written and produced by volunteers working to develop community radio journalism in Staunton.
If you would like to join us in WQSV’s journalism project, experience is not necessary. We can train you in recording and interview techniques, copywriting, and using digital audio editing software.
