Welcome to PNN!
Meeting the people who are leading the way!
Welcome to "Positively Northern Nevada" a website and news segment featuring stories about people and events in Reno, Sparks and the surrounding communities. Hosted by award-winning journalist, Jennifer Burton, this site is designed to inform and inspire you! So many people are creating new ideas, helping others and making Northern Nevada a better place to live. I'd like to tell their stories. If you know someone who is working to change our area for the better, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave me your comments as well. Let's start something positive and meet the challenges of today together.
Our Mission: To use the power of media to connect people and report stories that are inspiring, responsive and relevant (ie: not because they sell commercials.) To pursue news as a passion, and learn about who we are in Northern Nevada and what it means to live here.
Jennifer Burton has a passion for news and nearly 20 years of on-air broadcast experience, including 10 years in Northern Nevada working for for Channel 2 news and KOLO-8 news.
She has covered some of the biggest stories in Nevada, including floods, wildfires, and presidential campaign visits.
