TriCities.com is an online source for news and information in the Tri-Cities (Johnson City, TN; Kingsport, TN; Bristol, TN-VA) area of northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia. The website debuted in June 2003, and unified two previous news websites for the region, wjhl.com and BristolNews.com.

In 2010, the Bristol Herald Courier working with TriCities.com won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, the highest honor in American journalism, for "illuminating the murky mismanagement of natural-gas royalties owed to thousands of land owners in southwest Virginia, spurring remedial action by state lawmakers."[1]
