Have a news tip? Here's how to get it to KPCC

Some of our best stories come from our listeners. That's why we want to hear from you. 

We work hard to hold our elected leaders and institutions accountable, to make sure your tax dollars are spent properly. And we've expanded our investigative team so we can deliver more accountability journalism to our audience.

If you have a tip about waste, fraud, corruption or other matters you believe need to be uncovered, we're listening.

What makes a good tip?

Send tips to newstips@kpcc.org. Or, if you would prefer to submit on an encrypted service we have set up a number on Signal.

What is Signal?

Signal is a free and open source messaging app. It offers end-to-end encryption to send messages, photos, video and calls. It will only retain your phone number, when you first registered and when you were last active.

Signal does not keep any metadata surrounding your communications. It can also be set to delete messages from the recipient’s and sender’s phones (once the messages have been seen) after a certain amount of time. You can download it on your iPhone, Android or desktop here.
