A Northern Virginia newspaper is looking to continue providing quality news to the community.
InsideNOVA celebrated its 5th anniversary at a Prince William Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on Wednesday.
The celebration was held at KO Distilling in Manassas.
InsideNOVA was established in 2013 after BH Media closed the News & Messenger, a Prince William County daily newspaper, according to Publisher Bruce Potter.
“We believed the Prince William community was large enough and dynamic enough to support a weekly newspaper and that it deserved a source for quality local news,” Potter wrote in an email. “We’re extremely thankful for the community and business support that has allowed us to be successful and for the hard work of our employees that has made this effort possible. We look forward to providing the Prince William community with quality local news and information for many years to come.”
On January 1, Rappahannock Media LLC. purchased the Woodbridge-based publication, which provides news, sports, traffic and weather updates to thousands of readers.
Rappahannock Media publishes weekly newspapers in Culpeper and Rappahannock counties in addition to Lifestyle magazines in Gainesville, Haymarket and Warrenton.
InsideNOVA’s paper reaches 25,000 households county-wide every week and its news site sees 475,000 monthly visitors.
The publication produces a weekly paper in Stafford County as well as the Belvoir Eagle and Quantico Sentry military base newspapers.
