The Story of VirtualNewsCenter
VirtualNewsCenter® was founded in 2005, and became the first to virtualize both the business of radio news and the product itself. The company quickly established itself as the industry leader in remote news delivery, and continues to grow today by adding new client stations and providing content to an increasing number of sources.
VirtualNewsCenter® anchors and reporters build years of experience before coming on board, and are experts at providing quality local news in communities of all sizes.
