The 109 is a student-run, hyperlocal news organization focused on southwest Fort Worth, Texas. It’s run by Texas Christian University student journalists and volunteers. Our name comes from the ZIP code where we’re based, 76109. In addition to everything within our zip code, we also cover news and events in areas that affect the people who live in the 109, including downtown, the cultural district and Fort Worth’s Near South Side. By doing this, we aim to be a resource for everyone, both inside and outside of the community where we live.
