We offer immediate 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, Martinez, 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, you can sign up for our lightning fast Flash Alerts to get breaking news alerts sent to your smartphone as news is happening for a a mere $10 every three months. we don’t charge for obituaries, we don’t charge for you to see our video news packages.

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.

  1. FYI, some people on NextDoor are wondering who News24-680 is. They said there are no bilines on the articles stating who the author is. I assume there is only one person behind News24-680 but that is besides the point. This is regarding the recent robbery in WC and the lack of any other news outlets reporting it. ND users suspect the robbery is fake since you are the only person reporting it. I believe it really happened but the other news outlets aren’t reporting it since there is only really East Bay Times and SF Gate, besides you, and sometimes they don’t care about Lamorinda local news. Keep up the good work.

    • Hey, Chris… we don’t wish to be dismissive or rude but we don’t give a toss what ND people think of us or who they think we are. Our stories are not about us – they’re about news. We would have thought people would have learned their lesson about us after the Orinda Halloween mass murder; the Canyon murder; the Modern China shots fired story – all of which were ours ALONE for hours, days, sometimes a week or more before one of the people ND people believe in finally decided to confirm what we’ve said all along. Trust in us, or not, it’s fine. Thousands of people do and we’re writing for them.
