Doug Livingston of Akron Beacon Journal
“This entry is a breath of fresh air. Every piece is as strong as the last. Doug Livingston asks the right questions and follows though until he gets the answers. His entry shows doggedness, thoroughness and results, even getting a state school board member to resign over conflicts of interest. All the more impressive that he is in his first year of reporting.”
“Doug Livingston often chooses compelling and important topics, from tragedies he linked to school bus funding cuts to reduced funding for preschool. The reporting is deep and his instincts strong”
