US Airways Magazine Feature
The City received widespread acclaim and national publicity in a 43-page feature in US Airways magazine. The August 2014 issue showcased Newport News as an exciting place to live, work and play through a series of articles highlighting business and quality of life around the City. A variety of prominent companies (including Riverside Health System, Ferguson, ICG and Newport News Shipbuilding), business partners, educational institutions, attractions and City departments contributed to the highly anticipated edition, seen by six million travelers. In addition to funding assistance, the EDA provided extensive editorial support to the feature. It serves not only as a marketing tool, but also as a reminder of the strong asset base and favorable amenities in Newport News.
