Palo Alto Weekly

Work Phone: (650) 326-8210 Website: http://www.paloaltoonline.com


The Palo Alto Weekly was founded in 1979 by a group of longtime local residents who believed that the Palo Alto community needed a high- quality newspaper that would provide an alternative to the Palo Alto-based daily.

The Weekly’s goal is to address serious and important issues facing the community through thoughtful, in- depth reporting and analysis not found in other newspapers, and to strive for the highest quality and professionalism.

Over the years, the daily experienced a steady decline in circulation and advertising, leading in early 1993 to its closure.

In Jan. 1994, the Weekly was the first newspaper to publish its entire editorial content to the Internet.

The Palo Alto Weekly is one of two AAN members that is mail-delivered to virtually every household in the market.
