A letter from Terry Bouquot:

Dear Readers,

Welcome to your new Journal-News – a major metro newspaper for those of us who live and work in the northern Cincinnati area!

Our news team has been hard at work focusing our efforts on in-depth and investigative coverage of the topics that matter most to you.  We’ll dig deep into issues like jobs and the health of the local economy; health care issues affecting the quality of local care; government waste; the quality and cost of local education; crime concerns affecting your personal safety; and balanced political coverage.

Here’s what sets the new Journal-News apart from other Cincinnati-area newspapers:

  • Our front page and section:  Every day, our front page will give you the most important news from our area, state and nation – not just a photo and big headline, but in-depth, complete stories about the day’s most important news.  Check out our new local Business and Ideas & Voices pages, I think you’ll like the changes we’ve made.
  • Targeted local coverage:  Whether it’s news about local businesses, schools or government, our reporters are the experts at local coverage.  And by local, we don’t mean Dayton.  If you live in and around Hamilton, Middletown, Liberty Township, West Chester Township, Fairfield, Oxford and other areas of Butler County, we’ve got your community covered.  Our team of full-time reporters, editors and photographers is ready to bring you the local news you desire.
  • The best Cincinnati event coverage:  Our partnership with WCPO 9 On Your Side allows us to get all the important Cincinnati event coverage, and our own team of experts will bring you the best of Butler and Warren counties.
  • Local sports coverage:  Every day our Sports front will feature two area high school stories while inside you can read the latest on the Reds, Bengals, Miami RedHawks and Ohio State Buckeyes with national sports stories and scores.

 And all of these stories and the latest local news can be found on the new website.  As I told you in September, I am very excited about the new journey we’re on.  I live and work in the area, and it’s important to me personally that we provide the best and most important news for our region.  Oh, and a whole lot less Dayton news too!

 Please let me know what you think.  Your feedback will make us better.
