If there’s one thing we have in common, its opinions. Portland is no different except perhaps we are even more opinionated than most.

We read, we watch, we write, we caucus, celebrate and rise up as we see fit. As such, Portland has a great selection of mainstream and independent news sources, in all formats. From local Portland news published by and for each neighborhood, to popular TV and news radio stations, to the individual voices of bloggers.
