And we’re live. Welcome to The Burgs
Hello and thank you.
Thank you for checking out The Burgs, a new community website for and by residents of Blacksburg, Christiansburg and the entire New River Valley.
For and by — what’s that mean exactly?
It’s for you, as in we have you in mind when we send out our staff to cover news and features across the valley. We will be introducing The Burgs’ journalists to you here, one-by-one, each day this week.
A description of Travis’ job helps explain the latter part of our “for and by” motto. Much of what you’ll see on this site will be provided by you, or someone you know. We hope you spot Travis out in the community and say hello. He will be reaching out and helping you get your community news, event info and photos on our site.
Once it’s published here, we may choose to include what you’ve submitted in our sister print publication. Beginning Sept. 29, The Burgs will publish Thursdays through Sundays in the New River Valley editions of The Roanoke Times.
And with that, The Burgs begins. Let us know how we’re doing as we pull out of the gate.
