Johnstown native joins Ligonier Echo staff
The Ligonier Echo welcomes Nicole Chynoweth to the editorial staff.
Chynoweth, 22, will be responsible for municipality meeting coverage in the borough and township, police and court reporting as well as breaking news stories in the Ligonier Valley.
Chynoweth is a native of Johnstown. She graduated in May from Point Park University with a degree in journalism and multimedia. She has previously written for Our Town newspaper, Richland Magazine and Pittsburgh City Paper's music section.
After graduation, Chynoweth accepted an internship with the Tribune Review in Greensburg. Her responsibilities during that time included several assignments for the Ligonier Echo.
“Nicole will be an asset to our reporting team,” said Deborah Brehun editor of the Ligonier Echo. “She is familiar with the community and will represent our newspaper in a mature, professional manner.”
Chynoweth said she enjoys playing the clarinet, visiting flea markets and antique stores and gardening, in her spare time.
