In a city where a great deal of attention is focused on national affairs, Washington City Paper maintains a relentless emphasis on local Washington. City Paper serves as the definitive local guide to cultural and civic life in the District. Beyond helping people make the most of D.C., City Paper’s dedication to groundbreaking reporting of local affairs reflects a strong commitment to the watchdog role of the alternative press. City Paper places serious emphasis on storytelling, employing some of the best writers in the industry.

A potent editorial mix, combined with elegant design and some of the lowest ad rates in AAN, has made City Paper one of the largest weeklies in the country. The paper’s web site–washingtoncitypaper.com–is a music-intensive digital presence, giving additional visibility to the City Paper franchise. In a city that’s home to the nation’s opinion-makers, City Paper is Washington’s authoritative local voice, engaging a well-defined demographic of young, active readers.
