You find the news,
we'll take care of the rest.


The Gryphon Content Management System (CMS) is a flexible and powerful platform that lets your organization focus on what it does best – reporting the news. Gryphon is built with the journalist in mind. Its distinct and manageable interface allows you to use the best tools to tell your story with ease. From videos and blogs to interactive graphics, Gryphon can handle it. Websites powered by Gryphon are very reliable and fully customizable.


A CMS for journalists created by
people that use it every day.


Gryphon is developed at The State News, Michigan State’s independent student newspaper. We’ve been around for more than 100 years and using Gryphon since 2000. We’re not going anywhere and neither is Gryphon. All of the features and workflows have been battle tested in our newsroom. The newsroom has also inspired many of the improvements to Gryphon, acting as our in-house research lab.


All the features you need
to tell the story.


Any browser, any screen

Gryphon works on any device. Sites powered by Gryphon are optimized for all browser sizes by default. All media files (videos, audio, etc.) are automatically formatted for all platforms when you upload them.

It's Simple. Really.

We know firsthand that newsroom staffs change very frequently. That’s why Gryphon was designed with ease and simplicity in mind. Most users are up to speed within a few hours of training. And if you ever have a question, we’re always here to help.

Plays well with others.

Every staff has their own web tools they like to use. From Google Maps, issuu.com to Storify, Gryphon works seamlessly with many third-party apps. We currently support over 30 integrations. Using one we don’t have? Let us know and we’ll happily add it.


We think Gryphon's great,
but don't take our word for it.
