Local News Proves Its Worth as a Community Resource

Mandy Jenkins, general manager for Mahoning Matters discusses how local news proved its worth during uncertain times.

She says Mahoning Matters has worked on “explainer journalism” – providing context to news and telling readers how it may affect them.

“Everybody wants to be writing a Watergate type piece, but what people needed right now were resources to know how to navigate this crazy time period and I think that that is really where local news proved its worth,” Jenkins says.
