Herald-Leader opening Pikeville bureau as part of alliance to boost Appalachian news 10/16/17

Reprinted from the Lexington Herald-Leader

The Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader will re-establish a reporting bureau in Pikeville next year as part of a partnership aimed at providing deeper news coverage in the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky and southern West Virginia.

The Lexington-based newspaper is one of three regional news organizations partnering with the Galloway Family Foundation and The GroundTruth Project's new "Report for America" initiative to establish three yearlong fellowships in 2018 for emerging journalists. The other news organizations are West Virginia Public Broadcasting and the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

The three journalists will report directly to their respective news organizations and combine daily assignments with a longer, in-depth project that will be a collaboration of the three news organizations.
