History

Fort Collins Weekly published its first issue on March 5, 2003. It was founded by publisher Joel Dyer and editor-in-chief Greg Campbell and operated for its first year from a small office on Oak Street in Old Town Fort Collins. The initial print run was 20,000 papers distributed free in newspaper boxes and wire racks throughout the city. Circulation grew along with its staff and in September 2004, the Weekly relocated to its current offices in the historic Miller Block Building at 11 Old Town Square. In December 2007, 33,700 copies of the paper were printed, with 28,200 mailed directly to city residents and the remaining 5,500 distributed on the street.

As a community newspaper, the Weekly covered all aspects of life in Fort Collins, from local government and local business to major crimes and in-depth investigations. The Weekly won major awards for its journalism from the Society of Professional Journalists. Its "Culture" section covered everything from theater and music to food and nightlife.
