Williamsburg Yorktown Daily (www.wydaily.com) is the only daily newspaper dedicated to Williamsburg and James City and York counties, known nationally as America’s Historic Triangle. A lot happens here every day. We want to report that news and ask for your participation.

Our goal is to report “why” things happen rather than just what; to avoid sensational and polarizing news and opinion; and to start a community conversation on all kinds of topics important to quality folks who live, work and play here. You can hear summaries of our news of the day weekday mornings and afternoons on two local radio stations: 92.3FM The Tide and 107.9FM BACHfm. Our goal is to be accessible and important to you. We want to do everything we can to make www.wydaily.com your home page, and we want to hear from you about how we can make that happen.

We enjoy sharing your community with you – and thanks for every time you drop in to read the latest.

Sincerely,

Thomas G. Davis – President, CEO – Local Voice Media (tom@localvoicemedia.com)
Kimberly Lenz, Publisher, VP Digital News – Local Voice Media (kim@localvoicemedia.com)

Will Armbruster covers sports for WYDaily. He’s had a semi-obsessive passion for sports his whole life, which could explain why he’s wanted to be a sports writer since he knew what one was. After realizing his mediocre high school basketball career wasn’t going to carry him to the NBA, he attended Longwood University where he wrote for the campus newspaper, The Rotunda, and served as sports editor for two years.
