Editorial Policy

The Loveland Voice is a community initiative, led by women, with a sharp focus on truth and transparency, to create a new source of information for Loveland’s residents.
As a volunteer organization, and generally, we retain the right to choose what content to produce and distribute.

We are frequently asked to cover additional issues, interview additional sources and provide different perspectives.

When these questions arise, we ask ourselves the following questions:
  • Do we have the capacity to cover this information adequately and in a manner that is useful to our community?

  • Is this new information or a different perspective on current issues that is not currently being highlighted in our community?

  • Is this information coming from a voice or perspective that has not been heard?

  • Is the source of information open to difficult questions?

  • Is the source of information helpful to residents?

  • Is this information coming from a source that has a personal or corporate interest, or that has more power than the average resident?

  • Has this source of information conducted due diligence to inform their opinion independently, and are they sharing it for the benefit of the community?

At no time is The Loveland Voice obligated to cover all sides of an issue, or to invest our time into sources or subjects that we see little to no value in covering for the benefit of the community.


The Loveland Voice focuses less on breaking news and information, understanding that other media partners, colleagues and outlets are focused on breaking news. Instead, The Loveland Voice provides in-depth information on a rolling basis. 


We play well with other sources of information to the best of our ability and welcome their sharing of our content as long as The Loveland Voice is clearly attributed.

Our Values

Ethical investigation of issues that matter to Loveland residents.

We are honest and transparent in our reporting and publish corrections by updating existing stories when we learn more.

We thank our supporters privately and publicly (depending on their preference) and give credit to our volunteers and in-kind contributors for their work.
