Outlier Media

News and accountability for Detroiters.

Who we are

Outlier Media is a Detroit-based service journalism organization. We identify, report, and deliver valuable information to empower residents to hold landlords, municipal government and elected officials accountable for longstanding problems. By keeping residents first, we hope to give more than we take, and leave people with the information they need to create change in their own communities. 

What we do

We deliver high-value information directly to news consumers over text message and offer every resident the ability to connect directly with a reporter. When Detroiters need help finding local resources or information, and when decisions are made that negatively impact their lives, we answer the call.

If you’re looking for important information in Detroit delivered right to your phone, text DETROIT to 73224.
