The Dispatch’s mission is to inform and engage Ohioans on issues important to helping them navigate daily life, and to hold public officials and business leaders accountable to the public. We emphasis enterprise and watchdog reporting. We take deep dives on important topics—opioids, suicide, fracking, income inequality, hazing, prescription-drug pricing, and ineffective and dangerous handling of arrest warrants to name a few. We initiated the Ohio News Organization collaborative of the eight largest newspapers a decade ago. We share content daily with non-profit and for-profit newsrooms and have worked together on joint reporting projects.
