Our Editor and Publisher is Crystal A. Proxmire.  Proxmire began her publishing business in 2004 by launching The Muskegon One-Fifteen.  This test publication paved the way for the launch of The Ferndale One-Fifteen in 2009. This small town news site has grown to a county-wide framework with over 80,000 readers each month, and the updated name of Oakland County Times.  Proxmire’s work has also been published in several other local news publications, as well as the Michigan Municipal League’s “The Review” magazine. She is a Ferndale native and a graduate of Grand Valley State University, and she has won two investigative journalism awards from the Detroit chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
