Journalist and student Faith E. Pinho is always hunting for good stories – whether it’s in the mountains of Virginia, the streets of Washington, D.C. or somewhere in between. Faith is currently reporting for a number of news organizations while pursuing a double major in Journalism and Politics at Washington & Lee University.

In addition to reporting for WMRA, Faith has recently covered metro and political stories for The Washington Times and served as weathercast anchor for The Rockbridge Report. She has also written and produced newscasts for WBUR, Boston’s NPR station; created a documentary on a local baseball heroine for Everett Community Television and more.

When she isn’t chasing leads, Faith can be found playing jazz saxophone or reading in the corner of a coffeehouse. Faith is always happy to cook anything, adventure anywhere and meet anyone.

Among the many groups that descended on Charlottesville last weekend for Saturday’s rally of white supremacists, a collection of faith leaders from around the country stood together to provide solace and solidarity in the midst of chaos. WMRA's Faith Pinho has this story about how the Episcopal Church responded to events in Charlottesville -- and how it is addressing issues of race in general.

Few visitors are aware of the graveyard on the other side of town – or its storied legacy. WMRA’s Faith Pinho has this report.
