Retro Report was created by Christopher Buck, who first began drawing up the blueprints for this living news library more than a decade ago. An entrepreneur and a philanthropist, Buck is a reformed news junkie who spent 15 years working as a television editor.

The project was launched by Buck, his partner Larry Chollet and Executive Producer Kyra Darnton and their team of producers, reporters and editors.

In keeping with our public service goals, Retro Report is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization of the Internal Revenue Code. We seek tax-deductible donations from foundations, institutions and individuals to support our work.

Just as traditional news companies have created a wall between their advertising and their editorial departments to prevent undue influence, we likewise maintain a wall between our fundraising and our editorial departments. We will not charge for access to the website.
