What beats reading the newspaper over a Starbucks cup of latte? Getting the paper for free…

The Seattle Weekly is considered as the top three leading newspaper in Seattle. It was formerly called The Weekly when founded by Darrell Oldham and David Brewster. Seattle Weekly’s first issue was published on March 31, 1976.

Village Voice Media owns Seattle Weekly, along with the Village Voice. Aside from these two, the company also owns other famous weekly publications such as LA Weekly, OC Weekly, and SF Weekly.

The Seattle Weekly’s circulation was at 100,089 by December of 2005. It is published every Wednesday and is distributed to its readers free-of-charge. It serves a wide market which includes Metropolitan areas of Seattle, Tacoma, and Everett, the Eastside of Bellevue, as well as Redmond, and Kirkland. The Seattle Weekly is audited by the Audit Bureau of Circulation, with its national advertising a responsibility of The Ruxton Group. Obviously, the Village Voice Media is Seattle Weekly’s publishing group.

The Seattle Weekly is said to be the biggest and most famous weekly in the whole Northwest. It is also considered as the leading choice behind both JOA papers which are the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It is renowned for its tough coverage on political issues, and urban matters. The Seattle Weekly has its share of award-winning reports and commentaries as well.

If you miss an issue, stop fretting. Seattle Weekly has an online site for the convenience of its readers. Its website is, which contains everything that the hard copy does. There are sections on news, food, music, arts, film, diversions, and classifieds. Anything you want in a paper is there, no more than a few clicks of the mouse. Seattle Weekly’s website also offers to send newsletter. All you are required to do is sign up online for free. The newsletter will be sent via your email and will give you a quick peek on what the website has in store for you every week. One other great thing about the site is it allows anyone to post ads or pictures, and answer ads free-of-charge. This excellent advertising opportunity is ideal for those small-scale businesses that can’t put out a lot of fund for advertising expenses.

The Seattle Weekly is proud to be a medium for all comments that readers want to express. Those who have posts are welcome to send them online. Events and tips in any topic of interest are also given their share of space. With all the services and perks that the Seattle Weekly has to offer, I wouldn’t be surprised why 450,000 readers every week are glued to the paper. Surely, the cup of latte doesn’t have anything to do with it.
