What We Do  

WRIC ABC 8News helps organizations connect with our audience by using compelling videos, graphics and more to tell a unique story. One size does not fit all when it comes to advertising. Media and viewing habits are changing.

Yes, we can deliver your message to a local TV audience who is loyal to our trusted news brand, and we’re proud of that. But we can also do so much more.

Our team of highly experienced marketers, analysts, cross-platform media specialists, designers and photographers deliver best-in-class, custom advertising solutions to drive meaningful results for your business.


Whether we’re connecting with the audience through a local news broadcast or a loyal website user is reading the morning headlines online, we’re leading the region with local news.

  • We produce more than five hours of local news, weather and community information every day that impacts viewers in the Richmond-Petersburg DMA.
  • We’re part of Nexstar Media Group. Our company has multiple television stations in Virginia allowing us to produce relevant news specials across the state.
  • As Richmond’s ABC affiliate, we air top-notch programming including American Idol, Grey’s Anatomy, The Bachelor, The Oscars, Dancing with the Stars, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy, along with first-class live sports including college football.

Digital Agency Services  

We get it. The seemingly endless array of digital marketing tactics can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know where to place your valuable marketing dollars to generate the best results.
