This is Roanoke is a new news site that aggregates news and information specific to the Roanoke area. It’s not quite as slick at, the official website of the Roanoke Times, but it’s more straight forward and has less advertisements (and none of those terrible animated ads!). It also includes feeds from local bloggers, including for some inexplicable reason. So, if you’re interested in a fresh source for Roanoke news and you want to keep up with us at the same time, take a look.
