Thank you for your interest in collaborating with WHRO. 

 WHRO is proud to showcase many hours of independently produced content across our multiple platforms, including WHRO TV, WHRO World, WHRO Create, WHRV 89.5 FM and WHRO 90.3 FM, AltRadio, The 1920s Network and WHRO.org. We are excited to work with innovative independent producers and filmmakers from our region and across Virginia.

Below you will find our online application, including a place to post your work sample and our submission release form. The information you provide will help us review your program or proposal. 

WHRO receives many more submissions and proposals than we could possibly use across our platforms. However best efforts will be made to respond to all inquiries within six weeks of the submission date.

Please note that WHRO does not currently have dedicated funding for the production of independent projects, or the staff capacity to help you raise funds. Resources WHRO can offer include:

·         in-kind production and post-production services

·         distribution

·         consulting

·         letters of support

·         broadcast or streaming on our platforms

We are most interested in content that is directly related to our mission of educating, enlightening, and inspiring our members, listeners and viewers across the state. Topics and areas of interest include:

·         arts/culture

·         documentary

·         local and state history

·         public affairs

·         sea level rise

·         diversity and race


Topics or types of programming we are not interested in include:

·         advocacy programs

·         commercial or promotional programs

·         religious programs


Independent productions may be presented as series, stand- alone programs, or folded into some of our current productions, like Curate, Another View, or HearSay with Cathy Lewis. WHRO is also seeking digital content for whro.org and our other digital platforms.

We look forward to reviewing your materials.
