DescriptionConsider MyEugene your full-service hyperlocal news site in the second largest city in Oregon. If you’re new to town and want to know where to buy dog food or recycle Styrofoam just ask Jaculynn Peterson MyEugene’s founder and editor. Like many of MyEugene’s readers Peterson is not native to Eugene or the West Coast. But when she moved there in 2007 looking for something new to do after a career in corporate communications she found the potential of digital journalism and social media intriguing.
