Want to let The Arkansas Traveler know about some news? Below are some easy ways to let our editor-in-chief know what’s going on.
What makes a good tip?
A good tip is one that is newsworthy. If you have documentation or proof, that makes a strong news tip. Rumors or personal grievances are usually not good news tips. If your roommate is stealing your Ramen noodles, that’s too bad, but we don’t want to hear about it. If you have evidence of corruption or wrongdoing by some university-affiliated group, the city of Fayetteville or the UofA, we want to hear about it. So, peruse the methods below to submit a tip.
If you aren’t too concerned about security, feel free to give us a call. The direct line to the editor-in-chief is 479.575.8455. The general office number is 479.575.3406. If you call that number, one of our receptionists will answer and get you in contact with one of the editors.
You can send the editor an email at email@example.com. If you are concerned about security, create an email account not associated with your name and send your message along.
Send us a letter.
The hardest news tip to trace is one that comes to our office in the form of snail mail. Just leave off the return address, drop your letter in a mailbox and address it to:
