About us

Virginian Tribune

The Virginian Tribune was created as an additional news source with our own perspective to the greater Roanoke area. We believe the local community will find our content helpful as we strive to report unbiased local news as fast and reliably as possible.

Our main focus is local, regional, and state news, but we also aim to cover national news, including politics, economy, public health, and crime news.

Mission and Editorial Standards

Our mission is to connect with an audience that wants a deeper, clearer understanding of the world around them, regardless of their orientation. Our team of reporters, writers, editors, and publishers will always provide the facts and context necessary to understand every single piece of content published on our website.

We strive to uncover all the facts 

We believe that there are knowable facts, and we are committed to the truth. Before it’s published, every piece of content is thoroughly examined, and we will always present a broad range of relevant facts and viewpoints, which is a reflection of our strict editorial standards. We promise that every assignment will give the most complete picture possible, and we always give the best sources for certain topics.

Independent journalism

This site is not owned and operated by major corporate news companies, which gives us the ability to pursue stories we think are important to our readers. Our team has complete freedom in creating the content from a neutral point of view, and every single member is taking rigorous steps to avoid personal conflicts of interest and disclose them when they cannot.


Local, regional, and state news remain our top focus, but we also create content that we believe is of national interest.


The site is supported by donors, sponsors (mostly local companies in the areas we operate in), and advertisers (through the largest ad networks like AdSense, RevContent, and Mgid). We commit to disclosing any other paid relationships not covered in this description. Our investors, sponsors, and advertisers will play no role in editorial decisions.
