Seattle Weekly: Review and rate

Seattle Weekly is a freely distributed weekly newspaper in Seattle, Washington, United States. It was founded by Darrell Oldham and David Brewster. Originally called The Weekly, it was first published on 31 March 1976, and since then the paper has prided itself in following the upwards trajectory of Seattle's cultural transformation. Read on to find more information about this newspaper.


The forerunner of the Seattle Weekly, The Weekly, initially focused on arts, culture, politics and a constant round of questioning of what Seattle might evolve into. Rival The main rival of the paper in delivering Seattle news is The Stranger which was first published on 23 September 1991, and is another example of edgy, progressive journalism. It attracts a weekly audience of around 85,000. Seattle Weekly currently In 1995, The Seattle Weekly moved from paid to free circulation before being sold to Village Voice Media in 1997, which was in turn acquired by New Times Media in 2005. It's current weekly circulation is around 100,000.


Today, the printed version relies heavily on publishing an extensive range of 'best of' guides, entertainment news as well as traditional local news stories. Online offers Its online portal offers selectable tags for key categories such as news, music, calendar, restaurants, arts, movies and adverts. There are also sub-headings that lead to columnists, bar and club listings, Seattle events and three blogs. A general interest news blog called The Daily Weekly leads to a line up that includes Reverb, a music blog and Voracious, which is more of a dining guide. The Seattle newspaper isn't all about news, blogs and guides though, it also has a fair dose of satirical humour, probably best encapsulated in the beloved advice column Ask an Uptight Seattleite. Other facilities
Newsletters, tickets and coupons are also available through the newspaper's website as is the mobile facility for readers who want their news to go. The healthy competition between Seattle Weekly and The Stranger should ensure that local residents will continue to enjoy the same level of journalism that is the envy of many throughout the country.
