Who we are: Covering The Corridor is the premier source of breaking news and information for the communities surrounding the Richmond Highway corridor in southeastern Fairfax County. We are the top independent, online-only news publication focused on this growing and rapidly changing area.

Covering The Corridor itself grows each month, and shows no sign of slowing down. So far in 2018 we’re averaging between 45,000-50,000 page views per month. Our social media reach also expands each month, and we now have more than 2,800 followers on Facebook and more than 1,600 followers on Twitter.

Why advertise here: We are a community news site, trusted and relied on by residents to bring them accurate, timely information. Our audience is overwhelmingly local, so advertising on the site will automatically reach an audience that lives and shops near your business. By advertising on Covering The Corridor, you are also supporting a small business committed to the community, not a multi-billion dollar tech company with no stake or interest in the local area.
