Seattle Weekly is a freely distributed weekly newspaper in Seattle, Washington, United States. It was founded by Darrell Oldham and David Brewster.

Read on to find more information about this newspaper.

History

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.

Today

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

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.
