Free. Fair. Local.
The Fort Worth Report is a nonprofit, nonpartisan digital news organization. With the support of our members, our quality, in-depth journalism is free. We publish without any obligation to outside owners or interests.
We cover all that is best about Fort Worth and Tarrant County: its personalities, neighborhoods, businesses, arts & culture, education, health and local government accountability. We tackle its problems and challenges, too, and spotlight solutions.
The Fort Worth Report began in April 2021 with a small staff focused on solutions journalism and filling in the gaps in coverage. As we continue to grow, we focus on finding excellent staff members who want to report and write relevant and impactful stories that shed light on important issues.
