About Us

The Memphis Flyer is Memphis’ alternative newsweekly, serving the metro Memphis area of nearly a million residents. The Flyer was started in 1989 by Contemporary Media, Inc., the locally owned publishers of Memphis magazine.

For over 30 years, the Memphis Flyer has hit the streets every Wednesday morning with a blend of serious hard news and Memphis’ best entertainment coverage.

Our crack editorial staff covers the news you need to know in Memphis. From in-depth features on politics, local scandals, and newsmakers to on-point editorials that aren’t afraid of the heavy hitters, if it’s news, we cover it. Our entertainment and arts coverage is award-winning, and features the very best of Memphis music, nightlife, film, theatre, and more. In our pages you’ll also find the city’s most comprehensive event listings every week.

Memphisflyer.com is our partner website, and all of the features and editorials found each week in the print edition are searchable and downloadable and posted online every Wednesday morning.

Memphisflyer.com also features daily news and gossip found only online, and updated all day long, as well as 15+ online-only blogs packed with daily news you need to know.
