AVL Watchdog’s mission is to inform and engage the citizens of Asheville and Buncombe County through quality, in-depth journalism and analysis of topics in the public interest.
We are currently a group of veteran, award-winning journalists (About Us) and media executives who volunteer our time and collective experience t0 serve this community.
AVL Watchdog is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN 85-0614521) that freely shares our stories with other media outlets in the area to supplement their reporting and improve our reach. Those organizations include Asheville Citizen Times, Asheville.com, AVLtoday, Blue Ridge Public Radio, Mountain Xpress, Smoky Mountain News and WNC Times.
If you find our work valuable, we hope you’ll show your support. Funds raised will go toward covering our current expenses and allow us to hire full-time reporters and expand our kind of coverage.
If you would rather mail us a check, instructions on how to do that can be found here.
