The 25-year-old journalist and Penn State graduate said in an interview with Penn Live story that she is, “excited to have the chance to cover national breaking news and enterprise.”

Ganim, who won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting on the Jerry Sandusky scandal last year, said that it has nothing to do with the future of the Patriot News and that she will continue to report the latest news pertaining to the scandal.
