Founded in 1989, the Houston Press was the city’s first free major arts, news and entertainment weekly. Today, it continues as a daily online publication at And it’s still the place for Texans in this part of the state to find out what there is to do – or what other people did. Whether it’s investigating wrongdoing or providing incisive arts and entertainment coverage, the Press takes a no-holds-barred approach to gathering the news. Those efforts from our reporters, photographers, videographers and graphic artists have resulted in a significant number of journalism awards: First-place for staff blog in the 2016 Association of Alternative Newsmedia Awards; winner in the 2016 Clarion Awards for feature writing; winner for Outstanding Newspaper Article in the national 2016 GLAAD media awards; three first places in the 2016 First Amendment Awards competition for Texas and Oklahoma; and seven first places in the statewide 2016 Lone Star Awards. With more than 2.5 million monthly active users online, we’ve made an enduring connection with our readership community. And we bring that connection home with some of the city’s best live events. In April, our Menu of Menus offers tastings from the city’s best restaurants.
