L.A. Weekly and laweekly.com have grown into editorial powerhouses in the dynamic #2 market in the country. L.A. Weekly found success by attracting a specific desirable L.A. community with the ultimate fusion of print and web journalism. It attracts a loyal audience with bold arts and culture coverage, food and drink reviews, picks for music around town, in-depth cannabis and lifestyle features as well as comprehensive entertainment coverage.
L.A. Weekly in print and online is an essential guide for where to go, where to eat, and what to do in LA. Our articles and lists are filled with hot tips, dining reviews, concert and nightlife picks, plus pictorials of L.A. concerts and events, by L.A.’s best club photographers.
Founded in 1978 by an investment group that included actor Michael Douglas, L.A. Weekly is the nation’s mostly widely read alt-weekly, with well over 4 million active users visiting laweekly.com each month.
The Weekly is also an important journalistic force in Southern California. Weekly reporter Christine Pelisek broke the story of the “Grim Sleeper” serial killer, a true-crime blockbuster that was later optioned into a Lifetime TV movie. Our writers have dominated the L.A. Press Club’s Journalist of the Year awards year after year. Nationally, the Weekly has won more awards from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia than any other publication in the country. And in 2007 it became the first newspaper to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize for restaurant criticism.
L.A. Weekly not only engages readers in print and online but on social media channels and the streets of the city with some of L.A.’s best live events.
The Weekly has become a resource not only for Angelenos and visitors but for local and national businesses and brands to reach a targeted audience in a new and different way. It has prided itself in creating a repertoire of print, digital and social media marketing solutions.
By harnessing the power of the L.A. Weekly brand, our social clout, community connections and unmatched engagement, we are able to offer brands new and innovative ways to reach their target demographic as well as market in a way never seen before.
