Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

  • Senator Ron Wyden talks to the crowd at his town hall in Sisters Monday, Feb. 20. Wyden visited the Source Weekly on Wednesday.
Walking into the conference room at the Source Weekly in Bend, one of the first things people tend to notice is the kombucha on tap.

It was the same when Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) visited on Feb. 22, 2017. We offered him some, but on this day the Senator was drinking just water. But he did take that opportunity to begin our talk with him by touching on a proposed bill to change the antiquated laws surrounding kombucha—that fermented beverage that gets so much love here in Central Oregon.

Listen on to hear more about kombucha, the marijuana industry, the role of the media, the future of Medicare and the Democratic party, and more.
