In America’s theme-park Mecca, Orlando Weekly recently explored these themes: How a private group of developers pulled the strings that directed public land-use policies. How a millionaire time-share mogul made his money selling bogus promises. How an annual Gay Day gathering pushed The Walt Disney Co. out of the closet. How the state’s failure to monitor decaying wells threatened the drinking water supply.
Such investigative reports anchor what is otherwise Central Florida’s definitive get-around guide, with broad music and cultural coverage of a fast-growing region that is also a hotbed of indie music labels, independent film festivals and a rollicking downtown nightlife.
Orlando Weekly furthers the franchise at orlandoweekly.com, judged as a winner or finalist in the nation’s top two online newspaper competitions. Awards from AAN, the Society of Professional Journalists and many others have recognized the paper’s record of editorial excellence. At Orlando Weekly, some themes never change.
