About Deadline Detroit

We report to you.

Deadline Detroit is a source for compelling, reliable news. We produce both unique original news content and thought-provoking commentary on the day’s vital stories.

Deadline Detroit is one of the few locally owned, independent outlets in the region.

As corporate media outlets shrink local staff, news organizations like Deadline Detroit play an increasingly important role.

Who runs Deadline Detroit?

Deadline Detroit is headed by co-founder Allan Lengel, a former reporter for the Washington Post and Detroit News.  Other staffers and regular contributors have worked for publications including the New York Times, Detroit Free Press, Associated Press, Bridge Magazine, Metro Times and the Toronto Star.
