A Message from the General Manager

The WVPT staff had a wonderful time at The Paramount in Charlottesville and at the Court Square Theater in Harrisonburg for the Season 6 Premiere of Downton Abbey on January 3rd. The night might have been cold outside but it was nice and warm inside as we partied with old friends and got to meet some new ones. (Check out our Facebook albums HERE.) There's just something about watching a show together with hundreds of other viewers on the big screen. Our thanks to all our sponsors who made the evening possible. Stay tuned for details about future family friendly events happening in and around the valley.

This February, we welcome a new program to the WVPT lineup,The Coy Barefoot Show. The program is a weekly talk and ideas program that includes in-depth conversations about the latest news and issues in Central Virginia and beyond. Best-selling author and award-winning journalist Coy Barefoot is the Executive Producer and Host. The program is a project of the new Center for Media and Citizenship at the University of Virginia. The premiere broadcast will be on February 4th -- Click HERE for more information on Coy's show.
