The Portland Phoenix serves the southern Maine area with its extensive arts and entertainment listings, as well as news reporting. According to their web site’s history page:

“The Boston Phoenix was started in 1966 as a four-page arts-and-entertainment alternative newsweekly. Today, it is one of the largest publications of its kind in the country. The Phoenix is nationally known for its award-winning, incisive journalism and publishes the most comprehensive arts-and-entertainment listings of any paper in New England.”

The Phoenix expanded first into Rhode Island, and then, in 1999, began publishing a southern Maine edition.

Hard copies of the The Portland Phoenix, beginning with the 1999 premiere issue, are available in the Portland Room.
