Today is the last day for reporter Ashley Hopko at Local News Now, our parent company.

Hopko joined Reston now a year ago as part of the Poynter-Koch Media and Journalism Fellowship. During her fellowship, Hopko covered a wide range of stories from profiling locals helping vulnerable populations during the pandemic to interviewing county officials.

“While writing for Reston Now, I loved feedback — both the negative and positive — from commentators because it showed that they were engaged in our work,” Hopko told us about her experience reporting hyperlocal news. “We have the chance to amplify the concerns of community members and call out oddities.”

Hopko split her time between Reston Now and our sister site Tysons Reporter for most of her fellowship. When not reporting for the two sites, Hopko worked on a media project documenting the challenges Mexican journalists face, which won first place in the fellowship’s competition.

“The biggest takeaway from my fellowship with Poynter-Koch was the importance of transparent reporting and how to help people become media-literate,” Hopko said. “By properly crediting sources and links, people can learn to seek accurate information and form their own opinions on key topics.”

You will soon see a new byline on Reston Now. Say hello to Madeline Taylor, the summer intern for Reston and our sister sites Tysons Reporter and ARLnow.

She is a rising junior at the George Washington University, where she majors in journalism and mass communication and minors in psychology. During the school year, Taylor reports stories and helps with production for her college’s TV station and also is a member of the GW dance team “First Ladies.”

Local News Now, the parent company of Reston Now, is her first journalism internship.

“I’m so excited to be interning for Local News Now this summer and to be writing my first published articles,” she said. “Thanks, [LNN’s publisher] Scott, for taking a chance on me during these unprecedented times.”

During her three weeks here, she’s already had several bylines for Tysons Reporter. So far, Taylor’s reporting has ranged from covering how the Town of Vienna nixed its 130th birthday party plans for a virtual race to interviewing local restaurant owners on how they reimagined their eateries’ openings during the pandemic.

Originally from Wheaton, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, Taylor will cover all things local news in Northern Virginia this summer.

“I’m looking forward to covering local happenings and expanding my worldview by interviewing a wide variety of people,” Taylor said.

Local businesses are at the heart of a community like Reston.

But these are difficult times for those that run community-serving businesses, everything from stores to salons, dental practices to cafes.

While Reston Now’s own business has taken a hit, we want to step up and offer use of our platform to help fellow local businesses during the pandemic.

From now until whenever we see a meaningful recovery, we’re making our Community Posts feature free to all locally-owned, small businesses that have been negatively impact by the crisis.

Want to promote your business, service offering, online store or anything else, via Reston Now’s email newsletter and homepage? Submit a short post here and we’ll publish it on the site.
