Our site doesn’t have a paywall and all of our content and newsletters are always free to read.

Instead, reader support and advertising from local businesses power our locally owned, independent newsroom. If you like what we do, a contribution of $8/month means more than you’d think, and any amount helps.

Chris Barnett from Rhode Island Foundation joined us on this hodge-podge of What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on AM 1540 WADK to discuss the Foundations news that they are offering $265,000 in grants to serve Newport County residents.

Frank Prosnitz and I also discuss the possible sale of the Armory on Lower Thames Street, government transparency, and more.
