Praise for veteran reporter

To the editor:

Veteran Salem News reporter Mary Ann Greier recently took top honors in news reporting and feature writing in the Ohio Associated Press Media Editor’s 2020 Contest.

As a longtime reader of the Salem News, I was pleased but not surprised to see that her efforts and talent were commended by the Associated Press. Her straight news reporting is clear and makes often complicated issues easy to digest. But, it is her feature and human interest stories that I appreciate the most.

When I see her byline, it is always the first story that I read. Throughout the pandemic, I think that her features about life in our community have given us a sense of normal. A great example is her recent piece about the restoration of the Frostop Mug. Congratulations and “write on,” Mary Ann Greier!
