About Us

Deadline Detroit is a one-stop online news site that aggregates the best stories from local, national and international media about Metro Detroit. It also produces original reporting and provides commentary from top-rate local journalists. The site has led the way in the area of visual journalism through the use of drone videos, and has added a welcome spark to the journalistic landscape in Detroit.

The site was founded in 2012 by Bill McGraw, who worked for the Detroit Free Press for 32 years, and Allan Lengel, who worked for the Detroit News and the Washington Post.
Deadline Detroit’s office  is in downtown Detroit. Initial funding has come from Compuware Ventures, a division of Compuware. The news operation maintains total journalistic independence. Our address is: Deadline Detroit, Ford Building, 615 Griswold, 7th Floor, Detroit, Michigan, 48226.
