‘News and Brews’ offers quick and easy way to get to know reporters from YDR and WITF


Come out and meet reporters from the York Daily Record/Sunday News and from WITF-FM from 6-8 p.m. May 27 at BrewVino in York. This quick and casual setting is designed to help you learn more about us, and for us to hear from you – face-to-face – about your thoughts and concerns.

“News and Brews” takes a cue from the speed-dating concept to allow as many introductions to be made as possible. For about seven minutes, you will be at a discussion table and have the undivided attention of one of the reporters listed below. When time is up, you can head over to chat with another journalist.

You can also buy a beer or glass of wine and munch on a slice while we dish about what’s important to you.

YDR Managing Editor Randy Parker and WITF News Director Tim Lambert will kick things off, and from there you set the agenda.

Please register in advance and let friends and associates know.
