VNN helps veterinarians deliver pet health-care news to local media — print, television, radio and the Internet. The network includes more than 360 veterinarians and affiliate reporters who use VNN-produced resources to broadcast and publish local news stories.

"VNN was created so that television, radio and print news media would have a reliable, credible source of veterinary medical information," says Dr. Jim Humphries, VNN president and news director.

Funded by WVC and Merial, the network produced 48 news stories. In 2006 VNN-contributed stories were aired to an estimated 66 million viewers.
