"The Hook" is a weekly newspaper published in Charlottesville, Virginia and distributed throughout Central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley. It was founded in 2002 by a number of former employees of another Charlottesville weekly, "C-ville Weekly," including its co-founder and editor Hawes Spencer.

In 2007, "The Hook" won the Virginia Press Association Award for Journalistic Integrity and Community Service, the VPA's highest honor. [cite news | url= | title= Banquet bonanza: Hook, T-D take top prizes at VPA | date=2007-03-29 | accessdate=2007-06-12 | publisher=The Hook weekly ]

"The Hook" features include the "HotSeat" (in which Charlottesville notables answer questions about everything from what's in their refrigerator to their most embarrassing moments), "4BetterOrWorse" (an often humorous summary of local and national news items), and the "Culture Calendar".

"The Hook"'s webcam shows the streetscape of Charlottesville's Downtown Mall, a pedestrian promenade that includes the local Ice Parkand Jefferson and Paramount theaters

In addition to print, "The Hook" branched out into other media in 2006 with the launch of its blog and weekly podcast.
