Colorado Springs NewspaperIf youre looking for a Colorado Springs newspaper, there are two solid options the city has to offer.
The Gazette is the daily mainstream newspaper, with the largest circulation, offering standard news fare.
The alternative paper in town is called The Independent.
The Gazette, which can also be accessed online at gazette.com, has a circulation of 88,800 throughout Colorado Springs and its smaller, outlying mountain towns. This makes it one of the largest circulation newspapers in the USA.
The online version is quite large. Their Local heading has information on news, photos, a focus on Great Kids, and the Military. Their Infocenter has links to local databases and community information.
They also have standard newspaper info such as Entertainment, Sports, Life, Business, Blogs, Opinion, and Hot Topics. This Colorado Springs newspaper is also the one you would likely choose for Classified Ads.
If you're looking for jobs, autos, or real estate, The Gazette has the largest amount of information.
The Gazette's online blogs offer something for everyone, with titles such as Data Geek, The County Seat, Side Streets, Left Turn, and Your Space.
We find their Out There section to be particularly admirable, offering some great tips and stories on outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and skiing.
The Independent, like many cities' alternative newspapers, is the hip, cool free paper in town. Their office is in a converted 15,000-square-foot, 90-year-old church on 235 S. Nevada Ave. They have a ciruclation of 36,000 and their issues come out every Thursday.
This is the Colorado Springs newspaper you go to if you're looking for edgy opinion articles and/or expose stories on local and national current events.
You'll also find a larger emphasis on entertainment in The Independent, with stories and interviews about bands, artists, local authors, and other entertainers.
Their online version can be found at csindy.com, and their headings include: news, columns, food/drink, music, film, visual arts, stage, books, calendar, archives, special issues, and classifieds.
Every year, The Independent does their Best Of picks, highlighting the city's best restaurants and other local businesses.
A third newspaper option is The Denver Post, which has a state-wide circulation, and is delivered daily to the Springs, technically making it another Colorado Springs newspaper. See: denverpost.com
These newspapers can all be purchased at places like King Soopers, Safeway, and for free use at the Pikes Peak Library District.
