#1 Reporters for Dulles South, Loudoun and DC Region
After months of scanning the local rags, while listening to the TV, we feel it's time to point out our votes for the #1 Journalists covering the Dulles South, Loudoun County and greater DC region "hyperlocal" issues. Both are long-time locals.
Erika Jacobson at Connection Newspapers gets our nod for Print, as a seemingly tireless aggregator of local news and information, across just about any subject area. Just pick up the Loudoun Connection, South Riding Connection, etc., and you'll see byline after byline of contributions from Erika, written in clear, easy-to-read and well-research journalism prose.
Melanie Alnwick reports on TV for WTTG-Fox5 ("Special Projects Reporter and Sunday Morning Anchor"), and has over the years been consistently delivered really spot-on, award-winning stories and local news, with a delivery style and intelligence basically unmatched by most other TV anchors or reporters.
Any other favorites we've not considered?
The Best "Bloggers" award will probably have to wait till the Fall's political season, where everyone's sure to show their true colors.
