NBC NEWS TIPS

?

Newsworthy tips shed light on a matter of significant public interest. Do you have a news tip you want to share with our journalists? You can contact them directly by email, or you can send tips to our general newsroom inbox at tips@nbcuni.com.

You can also find ways to communicate more securely below. Keep in mind there are several tools that help protect your anonymity — but none are foolproof. Review each platform’s terms, conditions and instructions, and use them at your own risk.

A good tip is specific, backed up by evidence or documentation, and includes the names of people or organizations whom we can contact to verify the information.

We review all messages we receive but may not respond to all of them. If our reporters have questions, they may reach out to you on the platform where you contacted us.
