About Signal Cleveland

Launched in November 2022, Signal Cleveland is the inaugural newsroom in the Signal Ohio network of independent, community-led, nonprofit newsrooms. Signal Ohio is one of the largest local nonprofit news startups in the country.

At Signal Cleveland, we produce authoritative, trustworthy daily journalism across a range of topics, including governmenteconomyeducationhealth, and safety and resilience. We’re also home to Cleveland Documenters, a group of about 700 Greater Cleveland residents who represent almost every ZIP code in the county. They are trained and paid to cover public meetings.

Together, we are a primary source of information for residents who may not otherwise have access to trusted local journalism, and we’re available online, via email, and on social platforms. Our website has explainers and guides to help residents navigate life in Cleveland, and it serves as a growing civic tool for our city. We also hold community gatherings and trainings, and we’re present every day in Cleveland communities.
