It’s worth knowing what’s really going on

The local news you rely on from the Journal-News, Dayton Daily News and Springfield News-Sun is reported, written and packaged by journalists working right here in our community. It’s essential work that contributes to the health and vitality of the region.

Six out of every 10 adults in the region* read our news in print, online or in a newsletter every month. Our readers rely on the trusted local news that our journalists provide. We can do this work because of the support of our subscribers.

We are a part of the history of our region and deeply understand the opportunities and challenges that we face. Our reporting holds elected officials accountable. Our journalists investigate the security of the shared infrastructure that supports our communities and keeps us safe. And we have unmatched coverage of our local economy and the businesses that employ our citizens.

Our mission is to inform the community with fairness and inclusion, and to make sure everyone has access to the information they need. Much of the daily news we report is free to all. We cover elections and voting, and make sure the entire community has access to the detailed coverage of candidates and their policies. Stories that impact your safety—weather conditions, police updates, traffic changes—will always be available.

Thank you for reading the Journal-News and for supporting local journalism.
