About Riverfront Times

The Riverfront Times was founded in 1977 as St. Louis's alternative newsweekly. Since then, we've cultivated an audited weekly circulation of 55,000. Because of the pass-along nature of the RFT, our weekly reach is near 200,000 readers.

The Riverfront Times focuses on the issues that are important to St. Louis's young adults. Each week, hundreds of thousands of readers turn to the RFT for award-winning journalism, powerful investigative reporting, news and commentary on local politics, and the most comprehensive arts and entertainment coverage in the St. Louis area.

As the intelligent, aggressive and entertaining newspaper of St. Louis, the RFT has received considerable recognition, including more than three dozen awards from the Missouri Press Association, along with the group's Gold Cup, awarded to the best weekly in the state.

Our commitment to produce a quality publication has made the Riverfront Times indispensable to metropolitan St. Louis. It's our policy to correct errors swiftly and transparently.
