Help shape JPR’s coverage of Southern Oregon and Northern California.

Reporters at Jefferson Public Radio want to hear from you.

Our news department covers a large area of Southern Oregon and Northern California. We can’t be everywhere, so we want to hear what you’re seeing in your local community. What stories should we be covering? What questions do you have? What problems are you seeing?

The more we hear from you, the better we’ll be able to cover the stories in this region. We read every tip we get and we take privacy seriously. Here are a few questions to keep in mind when sending tips:

  • Why should this story be told now?
  • Is this a local or regional story affecting Southern Oregon or Northern California?
  • Who should we talk to or how should we follow up?
  • Is this time sensitive? If so, please tell us.
