Long Beach Post
Location: * West, California
Beat: West Long Beach
Position: This reporter focuses on West Long Beach, writing stories that shine a light on both the good and bad. West Long Beach has long been considered an underreported area of the city. It is separated from the rest of the city by a major freeway that feeds in and out of the country's biggest port complex, the ports of LA and Long Beach. Next to the freeway is the Los Angeles River, known for its polluted waters that feed into the Pacific Ocean, rendering our beaches unusable on rainy days or when sewage spills. The area is also home to a large minority population including Latinos, Asians, African Americans and Pacific Islanders. They face high crime, high unemployment and have some of the lowest numbers of high school graduates compared to the rest of the city, according to the latest Census figures.
