We know you want more coverage of the Main Line, but we also know you want better coverage. We recognize that you want coverage that knows the community as well as you do.
That won't happen by simply writing more stories. We certainly will write more stories, and we think you'll appreciate our consistent presence on the Main Line. You'll see our reporters, Josh Fernandez and Ashley Nguyen, writing their stories from coffee shops and shaking as many hands as possible.
