Do you have a story to share with us? Did you witness something you think should be reported? Reach out to the journalists in the Fourth Estate newsroom by sending in your news tip.
Please do not use the news tips service to send press releases, freelance story proposals or feedback on stories we have written. For those, please use the contact us page.
We're interested in any news tip that you think should be broadcast to an international audience. A good example is a breaking news story like disasters and riots, or if you believe something unjust is happening in your city, state, or country and you have clear evidence and records to back up those claims.
Your news tip should be specific and rely on clear evidence, not just a hunch or speculation. Documentation — such as emails, memos, videos, photos, or other records — and details are critical.
We cannot guarantee a response to every message. We reply first to messages of most interest to us and to those with more detail and/or supported by records and documents.
