About Very Local
Very Local is a streaming channel that offers local news and stories about your community.
The Very Local channel offers instant access to local news from 26 cities across the country, as well as a look at how national news stories have a local impact. From covering COVID-19, digging into veteran’s services, and revisiting national tragedies, to civil rights pioneers, Very Local teams have had a front-row seat and bring journalism expertise to covering the story. Remember the presidential election last year? Our teams were reporting directly from the communities across the country.
More Than Local News
We go beyond the news to report on the stories that make up the fabric of local communities. Here are a few folks you should meet:
- The senior citizens who volunteered their time to give back during the pandemic.
- The million-record man of Kanesville, Iowa, who has been selling used records for over 40 years.
