The Walla Walla Valley is a growing and vibrant part of southeastern Washington and northeastern Oregon. From the native people who have lived on this land for many centuries, to settlers who came here to discover the West, the people of the Walla Walla Valley make up a truly diverse tapestry. Those people are resilient in the face of disaster, innovative in the face of challenge and steadfast in what is right.
In 2017, Rise Media became the first digital media organization to serve the Valley. We started with two main premises: to usher in a new generation of media, and; to harness the power of the Internet to strengthen & empower the people of the Valley to achieve their best.
Over the course of our first year, we networked with community members, business owners, religious and political organizations and many more. We built a digital community comprised of over 20,000 individuals within the Walla Walla Valley. We listened, we made a few mistakes and we learned. Out of that experience, we restructured at the beginning of 2018 with a vision of using our presence to positively impact our community.
Rise Media Group is the outcome of that process. As a diversified media, entertainment & digital marketing services company, we own and operate market-leading digital properties across the Walla Walla Valley.
Thanks to those who support our work, our content is freely available to the community. No monthly subscriptions, no paywalls, and we won’t entice you for your money with cheap Chinese swag. You can keep us on the air by supporting our business partners who advertise on our network or by giving any amount to help us continue.
Walla Walla Valley TV is a web-based television channel featuring local, original content on issues from news & politics to lifestyle and culture. OutLoud News provides comprehensive news & lifestyle coverage for LGBTQ people in the Valley. We also operate a number of social media properties including the following Facebook pages:
- Rise Media

Rise Media Group is different than any media outlet you’ve ever seen in the Walla Walla Valley. That’s by design.
