Encyclopedia > The Boston Phoenix

The Boston Phoenix is an alternative weekly publication in Boston, Massachusetts that emphasizes arts and entertainment coverage, as well as alternative political viewpoints. It began in 1966 as a four-page arts and entertainment publication.

In addition to publishing its flagship publication, now of a more traditional length, the Phoenix also publishes a biweekly publication about Boston nightlife called STUFF@night Magazine. In addition, it operates an alternative music radio station, WFNX, which went on the air in 1983.

In 1988, the company that owns the Phoenix, Phoenix Media/Communications Group, bought a similar publication in neighboring Rhode Island called the NewPaper, which is now the Providence Phoenix. In 1999, PM/CG branched out into Portland, Maine by creating the Portland Phoenix.
