WCPO is committed to providing important, in-depth coverage of the heroin epidemic that is ravaging the Tri-State. Thousands are dying from the disease of addiction. Our journalists are constantly working to tell important stories of how addiction is affecting our region, how doctors, law enforcement, government, nonprofits and others are fighting the epidemic and more.
In addition to our strong news coverage, we have started a Heroin Advisory Board. This is a group of scientists, treatment specialists, social workers, law enforcement officers and parents who have lost children to heroin. This group advises our WCPO Editorial Board on the challenges our community faces when it comes to heroin. Our Editorial Board then advocates for solutions.
It’s all part of our effort to be On Your Side and help our community battle this scourge.
