About Us

On Common Ground News (ocgnews.com) was launched in April 1995 as a free print publication in DeKalb County, Georgia.

Glenn and Valerie Morgan founded the newspaper as a vehicle to enlighten, enrich and educate the community with a focus on local news.

On Common Ground News published its last weekly print edition in March 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, On Common Ground News (ocgnews.com) provides news and information daily online about DeKalb, Gwinnett and Rockdale counties, connecting readers with leaders, legislators, and resources in their respective counties as well as the metro-Atlanta area.
