We give balanced coverage to all sides and perspectives to create common understanding around what’s happening.

Vngle stands for “various angles”, and it’s a nonpartisan grassroots reality news network bringing coverage to underrepresented parts of society. We address news deserts, areas that get little to no daily or fair news coverage, by capturing human-interest stories from every angle. We ensure no perspective goes underreported.

“Vngle's mission is to help build a more interconnected society, by connecting every person with diverse comprehensive coverage on what’s happening around them.”

Definition of Vngle

Through partnering with communities, we provide nonpartisan reality coverage and reporting tools to areas that have little to no daily or fair news coverage. Our grassroots reporting serves as the last mile for pressing comprehensive coverage through supplying active stories with viewpoints from all sides.

The concept of Vngle was born in Ferguson, Missouri

Over 64% of the United States is considered a news desert, and Blake Stoner noticed this problem as he was registering people to vote in Ferguson, MO.

As he went door to door, he learned what was happening across the city from local perspectives, and realized so many of their experiences were shockingly going unreported. That collective gap revealed to Blake that many pressing stories across America are not being properly covered from all sides.

That inspired Blake to start Vngle.
