Interview with The Ojai Valley News. On Saturday, April 9, 2:30 pm, the series continued with Ojai Valley News owner/publisher Laura Rearwin Ward, news editor Marianne Ratcliff, and reporters Perry Von Houten and Kimberly Rivers. Local newspapers have been struggling, losing 2,200 of them since 2005. A few local residents have recently purchased Ojai’s 130-year-old journal of record as Ojai Media and led by Publisher Laura Rearwin Ward. What is the state of Ojai’s local newspaper, what are its values, challenges and vision for the future? Take a look inside the inner workings of our community’s newspaper and join in the discussion with the team bringing the news to our valley. This interview was conducted by Ellen Hall.
