I hail from a background in newspapers, where the news tip line was a notorious resource for the next big stories. It's how we were alerted to undercover police activity, led to sources for sensitive stories, and the majority of the time, where we learned about someone in the area doing amazing things or details for the next community event.

As the outdoor industry's leading trade news publication since 1985, we want you to have a designated place like that to go whenever you have a burning idea for a story, whether it's a quick news brief for Industry Buzz or something that deserves a greater investigative dive.

Something on your mind that SNEWS should be covering? Submit your news tip here.

We're simply requiring your name and email along with any pertinent information. We also have a space for you to fill in your phone number and the option to remain anonymous.

And of course, you can still directly email Editor-in-chief Kristin Hostetter (khostetter@aimmedia.com) and me (aarvesen@aimmedia.com).
