Our Mission

Valley Reality tells visual stories about communities living in the Appalachian Valley. We are based in Southeast Ohio, so that is our epicenter, but this region stretches across parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Through innovative storytelling techniques like 360 and virtual reality, we hope to bring these regions to life like never before.

Meet the teams is created and maintained by senior journalism students at Ohio University. In addition to producing stories, each member is part of a team that has a unique role.
