Podcasts: Chatting with folks from Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival, PFLAG, and 35th Annual Taste Of Newport

We’re on a mission to provide quality local and independent community news, information, and journalism.

I took over the WADK airwaves as host of The Open Forum and What’sUpNewp Radio Edition on Wednesday, it was a jam-packed two hours of fun and information.

The Open Forum (12 pm to 1 pm)

Is it the Endeavour? Archaeologists believe they have found Capt. Cook’s Vessel in Newport Harbor and it has put Newport on the national news headline circuit today. We chat all about it – what’s true, what’s real and what has been discovered.

Andrea Carneiro from the Preservation Society of Newport County, checked in to let us know what tix are still available for this weekend’s Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival.

We Can’t Do This Without You

After seven years, we have a major coverage expansion in the works for What’s Up Newp. We plan to increase the number of original news articles published daily by our WUN crew by 50 percent in early 2020, with more coverage of local issues, city government, education, and of course, much more on the topics and things our readers care most about in and around Newport County.
To support this expansion, we’re asking our loyal readers to become What’s Up Newp supporters.
Our content is free and always will be – but we rely on your support to sustain it.
