Welcome to the official site for the WHRO Emerging Leaders Board (ELB), a unique group of young professionals who are passionate about public media and who are interested in supporting its mission.

The mission of the ELB (also affectionately known as the ELBows) is to seek new and unique opportunities to engage millennials in public media.

ho We Are

We are made up of ambitious young professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who are beginning to make their mark in Hampton Roads in a number of different industries. We currently have accountants and finance professionals, communication experts, educators in the arts, educators in our school systems, we have PhDs, and nonprofit and local government professionals to name a few. In short, this capable group of millennials has an important bond, we are PBS and NPR nerds who are spending their time giving back to public media.

To maintain a focus on young audiences, members are between the ages of 21 and 40.

With authenticity and engagement at its core, the ELB’s most striking success has been their Emerging Talks series – where they host public conversations about local issues, developments, and other topics of interest around Hampton Roads, featuring public personalities, officials, and experts in a format that is playfully modeled after the French salons of the 18th century enlightenment.
