Wake Up Hampton Roads is a great source of independent journalism covering local stories in the Hampton Roads Region. At this point in time, the star, executive producer, and writer are all one person, Alma Kessling. Already, Alma is already challenging the local TV news broadcast in the quality and content departments.
Alma has long been active in local politics and her focus is where she lives....Norfolk, Va. Alma is also an active member of Hampton Roads Independent Media Coalition. there are plans in the works to expand the "focus" on stories in other cities.
Finally, a news program that is willing to concentrate on something more than the latest murder, robbery, car accident, and actually "report" on what our elected representatives are doing and who they are doing it with........We need to know what bills are coming up and how they impact our lives....you better believe the corporate elites are on top of this information all the time...and if it favors a corporate elite...well your wallet just got skinnier...
So check out Wake Up Hampton Roads.com....and then ask yourself why doesn't Cox TV allow this program on the "local" public channel that is supposed to be there for use by the community for community news.
