So You Wanted To Send Me A Tip Or News Item


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.

  1. To clean my ears I use Q tips.
    They are pretty good!
    Thank you.

  2. Ronn Owens has been vocal about not being happy with Obama's response to the recent elections. Ronn dreamed that he was Obama and made the speech he felt Obma should have. The following is a transcript of that dream.

    Good morning. I would like to address the elephant in the room. The elephant being the GOP.. uh....

    I want to be clear... The government was having problems and needed a change. I am excited about these changes and looking forward to the new Congress.

    One more item... Presidents Day is coming up and we all know what that means... Mattress sales!

    Now, I will take questions about cell phones. Steve in Half Moon Bay...

    "Yeah, John Lennon was murdered by Stephen King..."

    - At this point Ronn woke up screaming.
