News24/680 Group is a collection of "Old School" journalists, tech-savvy "Young Turks," and supporters - all of us dedicated to bringing local news to the people in an unfiltered and unflinching new way.
We offer deep, local coverage of news and events important to residents of the Highway 24/Interstate 680 Corridor - specifically the cities of Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Alamo and Danville - and we promise adherence to traditional standards of gathering and reporting these events, and to bringing them to you, our neighbors, with the lightning-fast expediency the latest technology affords.
Like the sound of that? We hoped so. Remember, we don't charge to get our news alerts, we don't charge for obituaries, we don't charge for you to see our video news packages. All that is free. But if you want to see independent community journalism succeed in your town, perhaps you'll consider making a small donation to help us keep the digital presses rolling...
News24/680 is committed to maintaining a level and civil playing field for all those who visit us. We promise to maintain high standards of transparency, disclosure and civility on our pages and want our users to know their opinions and ideas are respected and always appreciated. Our sense of neighborhood pride is high and we hope you will join us, take part in the discussion, and help build an online community we can be proud of and improve on together. News24/680 has been built on the premise that information heightens awareness and that an informed community can help neighbors come together, make better decisions, and effect change.
