Washington City Paper
The Washington City Paper is a U.S. alternative weekly newspaper serving the Washington, D.C. , metropolitan area. Founded in 1981, and published for its first year under the masthead 1981, taking the City Paper name in volume 2, by Russ Smith, it shared ownership with the Chicago Reader from 1982 until July 2007, when both papers were sold to the Tampa-based Creative Loafing chain. The former Chicago Reader Corp. , now named Quarterfold, still owns the buildings that house the papers and minority stakes in other alternative newsweeklies. The City Paper is distributed on Thursdays; its average circulation in 2006 was 85,588. The paper's editorial mix is focused exclusively on local news and arts. Michael Schaffer was named editor in April, 2010, two months after Erik Wemple resigned to run the new local startup TBD. Amy Austin, the longtime general manager, was promoted to publisher in 2003. The owner of the Washington Redskins Daniel Snyder filed a lawsuit against the City Paper for a cover story that portrayed him in a negative light.
