Your Voice Ohio
Starting a dialogue on Ohio's opioid crisis
Ohio has been one of the hardest hit states in the country when it comes to opioid abuse and fatalities. The Ohio Media Project is spearheading a new collaboration among newspapers, television stations and radio stations, including WKSU, to change the way the epidemic is reported, combining resources to better serve our audiences. This effort includes reporting on an area that numbers clearly show is struggling the most: the Mahoning Valley. The goal is to not just cover the problem but present potential solutions to be considered and encourage conversation in the communities we serve.
