Since its founding in 1970, Phoenix New Times has kept the Valley of the Sun’s feet to the fire.
New Times began as an aggressive, irascible alternative to the stuffy mainstream media, which attacked “hippies” just as it now belittles millennials. And thanks to its early commitment to digital journalism, New Times draws more than 1 million monthly active users to its website, newtimes.com.
Westword was born back in 1977, when Denver was booming.
Thousands of Baby Boomers were fleeing the coasts, lured to Colorado by the climate, the scenery, and the promise of endlessly flowing Coors. But with the deluge came a dilemma: so many young, active people — and so little that told them what was happening in their increasingly dynamic city. That’s where Westword came in.
Founded in 1989, the Houston Press was the city’s first free major arts, news and entertainment weekly.
Today, thanks to houstonpress.com, the Press is both daily and weekly, but it’s still the place for Texans to find out what there is to do – or what other people did. Whether it’s investigating wrongdoing or providing incisive arts and entertainment coverage, the Press takes a no-holds-barred approach to gathering the news.
If you want to know what’s happening in Dallas, keep your eye on the Observer.

Miami New Times started life as a small fortnightly newspaper in late 1987,
back when the Miami metropolitan area was served by two dailies, populated with aging retirees, begging for tourists, and struggling to invent a place called South Beach. And of course it all moved to a Latin beat.
In 1997, the owners of Miami New Times did something they hadn’t done since 1970: start a newspaper from scratch. That’s how New Times Broward-Palm Beach was born.
With offices in downtown Fort Lauderdale, the weekly publication was an instant success in the sprawling metropolitan areas stretching north along I-95, whose younger residents previously had no logical media anchor.
