Fit And Go Forward

We’ve added more reporters. Please support local journalism.

Journalists are a resilient bunch. 

They’re accustomed to people not returning calls, dodging questions and making their work more challenging. Some sources can be incredibly helpful. Others, well, let’s just say they don’t always cooperate. The best reporters still find a way to get the pertinent facts.

Perhaps that’s why our Beacon Journal news team has overcome a long list of challenges in 2020.

Some are obvious. The pandemic. Working from home for nine months and counting. Telling the stories of racial justice protesters. Unpaid furloughs and employee buyout offers. Covering an unprecedented election. Staying healthy while reporting.

Other obstacles are less obvious but no less important to ensuring the future of local journalism and attracting new print and digital-only subscribers, the latter of which has grown significantly this year.
