WBTV is committed to digging deeper into the issues and stories that impact you and others in our community. We need your help to tell those stories!

Have a story that you want to share? Have an incident you want to bring to our attention? Have concerns or questions about something happening in your neighborhood, city, or town? Have a problem we can look into? Reach out to WBTV. We’re on your side and want to help.

Contact us with a tip by emailing our newsroom at

Before sending a news tip, please read below about the process.
What Makes a Good News Tip? 📄

Be concise and provide us with specific details about the issue. A good local news tip should be specific about when and where the problem occurred. Tips should provide a clear understanding of the problem and the public impact of the story. Please make sure to include any evidence supporting your story. Strong evidence is imperative for a news story to be told. Examples of evidence to provide include documentation such as a police report, email exchanges, phone screen grabs, photos, or video.

What’s next after a tip is submitted? 📄

We review all tips that come into the newsroom, but a response is not guaranteed. A reporter or other newsroom staffer could reach back out to ask further questions or for further evidence before committing to a story. A callback on a story tip does not guarantee a story will be aired. Please leave us with the best email and phone number to contact you at. You may be asked to go on camera as part of our story.
