Our mission and values


To strengthen democracy by providing an independent, local news source that fills information gaps, holds the powerful accountable, serves communities that have been historically marginalized and improves civic engagement. 


To build a sustainable, independent, local news ecosystem, giving everyone in Greater Oviedo and Winter Springs access to important local information that impacts their lives. 


To create a better informed and connected community through independent, public-service journalism that focuses on issues that residents told us matter to them.


Independence: Ethical journalism that puts answering the needs of the people it serves above all else

Equality: Access to local information should be a right, not a privilege

Integrity: When we make promises, we keep them. When we make mistakes, we own up to them and do what we can to make it right.

Transparency: We do not take telling the story of the community lightly. You’re trusting us to provide information that you use to make important decisions. You should know who we are, how we operate and who funds our work.
