Happy Birthday Oakland County Times!
We launched our first online issue on June 1, 2009 as The Ferndale 115. In 2014 the great flood helped us recognize the need for local coverage in all cities and we expanded to the county-wide name and started bringing neighbors into the mix.
And in 2018 we set our sights on northern Oakland County, adding in Holly to start showcasing more nature and tourism stories, as well as to address the need for local journalism in rural areas.
Our focus now is growing a strong team, getting more writers working, and growing our roots in some new cities.
If you value having community-uplifting, informative and inspiring local journalism, please help us keep on this path by setting up a small monthly pledge at https://www.patreon.com/oc115.
Thanks everyone who has been part of making this website such a success!
