Franklin County Continues To Get Failing Grades For Air Quality

The American Lung Association's annual air-quality report gives Ohio good and bad rankings. The "State of The Air" report gives Franklin County an 'F' grade for smog pollution. The report ranks Cleveland as ninth-worst in the nation for year-round soot pollution. Cincinnati is tied for 20th. Columbus is listed as one of the nation's cleanest cities for short-term soot pollution. The report uses U.S. EPA data to track smog and soot pollution in 220 metropolitan areas.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
