Welcome to the Jackson Parish Journal

Thank you for joining us for the first issue of the Jackson Parish Journal! The JPJ is an online news source for all of Jackson Parish.

My name is Ben Ledbetter, and I am the Executive Editor and Market Manager for JPJ. I am a resident of Jackson Parish and I have a passion for serving the community and connecting with people.

With a focus on parish news, sporting events and people our goal is to become the “go-to” news source for our parish. We understand that in a fast-paced world people need news at their fingertips and delivered in real-time. Our first step in making news simple & free is to provide the JPJ free to subscribers in their email on Wednesday and Friday by 6:55 AM. You can also access the JPJ via our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

The Jackson Parish Journal is honored to become the most recent addition to The Journal family including the Natchitoches Parish Journal, the Red River Parish Journal, the Winn Parish Journal and the Sabine Parish Journal.

I hope you join me in the excitement of bringing you local news when you need it, that is simple & free! Please let me know what you think at JPJjackson@gmail.com. I look forward to connecting with you.
