Beat: General assignment in Ashland County with a Solutions and Engagement reporting angle
Ashland County (53,500 population) is a conservative Midwest community with deep agricultural roots, 50 miles southwest of Cleveland. This beat covers education, economic development and agricultural issues through a Solutions or Engagement angle. Our reporters become part of the community, host coffee talks, and reach our audience through Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets. We like to do journalism with readers, not to them. Basic photography skills are required, but we can help. Podcasting and video opportunities are available.
