  • The Phoenix New Times is a free, weekly Phoenix, Arizona newspaper, put out every Thursday. It was the founding publication of New Times Media, but The Village Voice is now the flagship publication of that company. The paper was founded in 1970 by a group of students at Arizona State University, led by Frank Fiore, Karen Lofgren, Michael Lacey, Bruce Stasium, Nick Stupey, Gayle Pyfrom, Hal Smith, and later, Jim Larkin as a counterculture response to the Kent State shootings in the spring of that year. Gary Brennan played a role in its creation. According to the 20th Anniversary issue of the New Times, published on May 2, 1990, Fiore suggested that the anti-war crowd put out its own paper. The first summer issues were called the Arizona Times and assembled in the staff's La Crescenta apartments across from ASU. The Arizona Times was renamed the New Times as the first college issue went to press in September 1970. Not only does the paper cover Phoenix and Arizona news issues, it also provides reviews of local restaurants, theater, art exhibits and Hollywood motion picture releases, and provides a listing of various concerts for all genres of music.
