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.
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
