Free Every Wednesday: Remembering the Village Voice

Posted by stephanie on September 20th, 2017

We won’t soon forget the thrill of picking up the Village Voice on Wednesdays after work, before settling into our commute home. Sometimes, we’d be lucky enough to pass one of those telltale red sidewalk dispensers early in the morning, and get our fill of investigative takedowns and new restaurant reviews before even arriving at the office, trying to shield our keen interest in “Savage Love” from the eyes of passengers riding next to us. Either way, we’ll sorely miss the physical version of the Voice, which published its final print edition today, and will live on in digital-only form.

But the alt-weekly has special significance for another reason, too: it’s where Alissa got her start in PR for media, as Public Relations Director from 1996-1999. Alissa’s photo appeared in the final print edition of the paper among other Voice alums from over the years, including celebrated feminist writer Susan Brownmiller, New York Times critic Guy Trebay, and Pulitzer-winning investigative reporter Mark Schoofs. On the cover? None other than Bob Dylan.

A good thing doesn’t always last forever, but we’re happy to have the memories — and the memento!
