Bringing in the best local news.
OpenFile is a collaborative local news site. You publish a story. Together, we shape the news. You suggest a story by opening a file on your account. (A file is our term for a story.) You can also add to files opened by other members of the community by submitting related videos, images and comments.
REPORT FOR OPENFILE
If you are a journalist, photographer, videographer or journalism student interested in contributing to OpenFile, we’d like to hear from you.
PERFECT FOR ANY KIND OF PRESENTATION
At the same time that you and other members are opening files and helping them grow, our editorial team is participating in the conversation and assigning a professional journalist to investigate.
We founded OpenFile
We founded OpenFile in the belief that local news should be a conversation, not a monologue. That said, we understand that the issues, events and personalities that shape our community can be divisive. When healthy debate degenerates into name-calling, personal attacks or hate speech, that’s when we have to step in. We do not call this censorship. We call this respecting others.
