Editorial Excellence

Pasadena's hometown paper, and its well-heeled sister Arroyo, leads their peers in the area of journalistic excellence. Pasadena Weekly takes pride in not only providing exemplary coverage of the region's expansive culture, arts and dining scenes, but also in breaking stories - something virtually unheard of in the alternative or weekly community newspaper business. Thanks to the Internet and our affiliation with the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN), Pasadena Weekly's editorial now has a global audience.
Over the past several years, Pasadena Weekly has won major national, state and regional awards for its coverage of the Greater Pasadena area and beyond.
