Since our return to local ownership in 2016, The Berkshire Eagle’s mission is to become the finest community newspaper in America. Through relentlessly local reporting on our 32 cities and towns in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, our staff punches above our weight class because we pursue stories that affect the Berkshires beyond the Berkshires. Our coverage area is both rural and urban, cultured and troubled, rich and poor.
Location: * Northeast, Massachusetts
Beat: Legislative coverage affecting rural western Massachusetts
Position: This reporter covers the Berkshires through the prism of State House public policy news coverage from Boston, the state capitol. This coverage is sorely lacking: Berkshire County is in Massachusetts, but doesn’t get local television news from Boston. Instead, the county gets TV news channels from Albany, N.Y., that don’t cover the Berkshires. This reporter also covers the Berkshires in a way that commands the attention of Boston.
