Becca Costello, WVXU
Before joining the WVXU newsroom, Becca worked in public radio and TV journalism in Bloomington, Indiana, and Lincoln, Nebraska. Becca has earned numerous awards for her reporting, including from local chapters of the Associated Press and Society of Professional Journalists, and contributed to regional and national Murrow Award winners. She grew up in Clermont County listening to WVXU and considers public radio journalism her "dream job." Her dog Cincy (named for the city they once again call home) is even more anxious than she is.
In a narrow vote, Cincinnati voters decided to sell the Cincinnati Southern Railway to Norfolk Southern — the same company behind the fiery derailment in East Palestine earlier this year.
A Cincinnati Council Member has found a workaround to lower speed limits without going through an onerous logistical process with the Ohio Department of Transportation.
