The Weekly's in-depth coverage of news, arts and entertainment has been recognized nationwide, presenting strong investigative reporting, diverse stories about local arts and entertainment, and for delivering stories important to the people that live and work in the community.
Reaching nearly one in three households countywide, the Weekly has the highest circulation of any newspaper in the county and has won over 75 local, regional, state or national editorial awards.

Our intent is to both inform and inspire readers, to lead them to become more involved in the community, and to be the premiere resource for Monterey County's arts and entertainment.
Supporting the local business community, the Weekly offers a direct pipeline to over 100,000 people per week, with both print and online advertising opportunities. Our classified section has over 4,000 ads per week, serving individuals, employers and realtors with affordable advertising.
