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.

We are a nerdy, fun, community-engaged group.  


Who We Are

We are made up of 22 young professionals who are beginning to make their mark in Hampton Roads in a number of different industries. We currently have accountants and finance professionals from large companies, communication experts from Fortune 500 companies, educators in the arts, educators in our school systems, we have PhDs, and attorneys who work for well-recognized firms (even a partner), and nonprofit and local government professionals just 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.

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.
