Find your local reporter…

KneeDeep has reporters who live in or near your county, and who are familiar with your local issues and concerns. Feel free to reach out to them with your story ideas. 

In some counties, we are looking for new reporters to fill gaps! And you don’t have to be a reporter to help us tell the stories that are important to you. We’re also developing a network of community correspondents – students, activists, community leaders, grandmothers who want to share their stories on a regular basis or who can be our person on the ground in your county.
