Local Media Present Highlights for 2019

Dubois County (NNDC):

Earlier this week the Jasper Chamber of Commerce and the local Rotary Club hosted a luncheon at VUJC for the local media outlets. The purpose was to highlight the top 12 stories for 2019.

The stories are submitted to a review board who vote on the winners.

Due to length I’ve presented only the top 4 stories for both news and sports. Most videos below are 1-2 minutes.

Media Members gather to here to review and celebrate keeping Dubois County and surrounding informed with the most relevant and update news as possible.  The 12 most voted upon are listed from first to last.
