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.
And some more folks whose words you read and voices you hear:
Will Armbruster covers sports for the 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. You can contact Will at email@example.com.
Gregory Connolly covers York County and all happenings in the police and court system in the Historic Triangle. He attended University of Idaho for three years, all of which were spent working for Argonaut, their official student newspaper. His final year in Idaho found him serving as Argonaut’s editor-in-chief. Following his time in Idaho, he transferred to George Mason University, where he spent an additional two years working for their official student newspaper, Broadside. He also served as editor-in-chief of Broadside during his final year at Mason. He’s a rabid baseball fan and is excited to be back in Williamsburg, where he attended elementary school and a year of middle school. You can contact Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org
Amber Lester Kennedy writes about education and the city of Williamsburg, along with occasional features. Because her dad is an editor in southwest Virginia, she practically grew up in a newsroom. She earned a degree in journalism from Christopher Newport University, then worked as a reporter and copy editor in Harrisonburg and Staunton. Her husband, Sean, is also a journalist in the area. You can contact Amber at email@example.com.
Desiree Parker graduated from the College of William and Mary longer ago than she cares to admit. Before coming to WYDaily, Desiree wrote for The Health Journal, a Williamsburg-based consumer health magazine. Becoming a reporter was a career-changer for Desiree, but she’s enjoyed every minute of it. She covers a variety of news in the Historic Triangle. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
