Who We Are

Phoenix New Times is an independent local newspaper and website whose small but scrappy staff of journalists have covered Arizona news since 1970. We also believe in celebrating Phoenix culture, covering our city's music, arts, and dining scenes with the same attention to detail that we devote to our news stories.

What You Can Do To Help

Since the day we were founded, Phoenix New Times has been free to our readers. With both advertiser and reader support, our print papers remain free and we've never put up an online paywall. We remain dedicated to providing our reported local journalism to everyone at no charge, regardless of their financial status.

We remain committed to keeping our journalism free and avoiding paywalls or mandatory subscriptions. But the long-term challenges organizations like ours face in generating advertising dollars aren't going away. We want to keep covering Phoenix the way it deserves to be covered. That means remaining independent and avoiding paywalls – but still bringing in enough money to fund our journalism.

We are calling on our community members to support Phoenix New Times by contributing any amount to support our newsroom. Join our community of members, and we'll put whatever money you contribute toward producing high-quality local journalism. We know you work hard for your money, and you can rest assured we’ll work hard for you, covering Phoenix as only we can.
