Mountain State Spotlight knows that West Virginians have stories to tell. We know that our neighbors across the state understand the issues that their communities face. And we know that listening to you is critical to our ability to give you the journalism you want, need and deserve.

One of our key founding values is engaging with West Virginians, to ask residents to be our partners in covering the news and producing journalism that helps make our state a better place. You can help with that by telling us what stories you think we should cover using one of the options below. 

We will never use your name or any other identifying information without talking to you first.

Not every tip turns into a story. But reporters and editors are checking our tips regularly, and we read every tip we receive. We will be in touch if we need more information or are able to investigate further.
