Signal Ohio, a nonprofit news startup, has launched its second newsroom in the state: Signal Akron. The new venture joins Signal Cleveland in the growing news network.
To date, six reporters and editors have been hired, and the newsroom is actively hiring to fill additional positions.
The new product is “a critically important addition to the local news ecosystem, filling a void created by shrinking newsrooms across the region,” says Debra Adams Simmons, senior director of editorial projects at WGBH, former editor of the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon Journal, and a Signal Ohio board member.
