More than 200,000 readers turn to us each week for our events calendar, our coverage of the latest in movies, local music, arts and culture, and food. We also cover provocative stories on topics ranging from sports to sex to cyberspace to City Hall.


The magazine was founded in the 1980s as the Orange Shopper. It was purchased by the Toronto Sun, which changed its name to the Weekly and transformed it into a tabloid publication. The Weekly was then sold to the Detroit-based Alternative Media Inc., a publisher of alternative newsweekly Detroit Metro Times. Co-founder of Alternative Media Inc., Ron Williams, transformed the paper into not just a tabloid but an alternative news source dedicated to investigative journalism. In 1997, Alternative Media Inc. also purchased the San Antonio Current, and by 1998, the company was entertaining multiple offers for its stable of weeklies. In 1999, the papers were purchased by Times-Shamrock Communications, a privately held family company based in Scranton, Pa. In 2013, Euclid Media Group purchased Orlando Weekly along with 3 other alternative newsweeklies: Detroit Metro Times, the Cleveland Scene,and the San Antonio Current.


Over the years, Orlando Weekly has won numerous awards from the Society for Professional Journalists and the Association of Alternative Newsmedia, including a ases2009 first place award for investigative reporting for a story on corruption in the Orlando Police Department. In 2012, the paper won second place for reporting on economic inequality from the Association of Alternative Newsmedia.


Orlando Weekly organizes an annual Best of Orlando issue that features the best Orlando has to offer in dining, music and nightlife, arts and culture, goods and services. Each year more than 4,000 readers vote in the paper's readers poll to vote for their favorite Orlando restaurants, bars, boutiques, museums, local celebs and more.


The paper also publishes an annual dining guide called BITE, which features capsule reviews of hundreds of area restaurants, and an Annual Manual, an insider's guide to the region.
