My lifeblood here is tips. They can be sent directly and anonymously. Without tips, 415 Media has to rely solely on sources which is OK but tips make the engine run.
Tips, inter-office e-mails, memos, directives, material is welcome and encouraged.
If it's something truly personal, I'm not interested unless it involves a general effect of the entire newsroom, TV and/or radio.
I always ask first for people to go on the record but I also know that some people want to remain anonymous out of fear of retribution from management. So if you send me something particularly sensitive and can do so only in confidence, I will keep it between you and me. Promise.
