It is with great regret that as of the March 26, 2009 issue, Southland Publishing, Inc. has decided to discontinue publishing the Los Angeles CityBeat alternative weekly publication.

For 6 years, the Los Angeles CityBeat has offered a fresh perspective to the readers of Los Angeles, and Southland is extremely proud of its writers and entire staff who have contributed to the paper.

We want to thank our readers and advertisers for their support. Southland Publishing, Inc. continues to publish the Pasadena Weekly, Ventura County Reporter, San Diego CityBeat, Inland Empire Weekly, and the monthly magazines Life After50, Ventana and Arroyo.
