Our History

When it was founded by Dan Wolf, Ed Fancher and Norman Mailer in the fall of 1955, The Village Voice introduced free-form, high-spirited and passionate journalism into the public discourse. As the nation's first and largest alternative newsweekly, the Voice maintains the same tradition of no-holds barred reporting and criticism it first embraced when it began publishing more than forty years ago.

The recipient of three Pulitzer prizes, the George Polk Award, Front Page Awards, Deadline Club Awards and many others, the Voice has earned a reputation for its groundbreaking investigations of New York City politics, and as the premier expert on New York's downtown scene. Writing and reporting on local and national politics, with opinionated arts, culture, music, dance, film and theater reviews, Web dispatches and comprehensive entertainment listings, the Voice is the authoritative source on all that New York has to offer. Add classifieds unrivaled by any other New York publication, the Voice is New York's most influential must-read alternative newspaper.

Dozens of diverse, talented and idiosyncratic writers, novelists, playwrights, poets, and political activists—lured by the journalistic freedom that non-mainstream status affords—have filled the Voice's pages over the years, cementing its standing as "a writer's paper." Among those who made the paper their romping ground in the past were Ezra Pound, Henry Miller, Katherine Anne Porter, James Baldwin, e.e. cummings, Ted Hoagland, Tom Stoppard, Lorraine Hansberry, Jerry Tallmer, Allen Ginsberg, Murray Kempton, I.F. Stone, Pete Hamill, and Roger Wilkins. Former Editors in Chief have included Dan Wolf, Clay Felker, Tom Morgan, Marianne Partridge, David Schneiderman, Robert Friedman, Marty Gottlieb, Jonathan Larsen, and Karen Durbin.
