About

The Charleston Gazette has a long and proud tradition as a crusading newspaper. Our late publisher, W.E.  Ned  Chilton III coined the phrase “sustained outrage” and insisted the Gazette live up to that motto with long-term coverage of important issues facing West Virginia and the nation.

The mission of the Gazette Watchdog is simple: To carry on that tradition. We make a commitment to our readers to serve as a public watchdog over government, business, and other powerful entities in West Virginia society, to ensure that the public interest is protected.
