Real-World Impacts

Legend
Real World Impact
Self reported impact on the communities the newsroom serves.

The Auburn Examiner's reporting, especially during the pandemic, has helped keep our community informed on important updates, information, and news. We use social media to provide breaking news updates (i.e. road closures, fires, and flood warnings), and to provide much-needed levity in a sometimes gloomy world. Our outlet has shared personal stories from our team and community members to raise awareness about important issues such as mental health, racial injustice, and pregnancy loss.
