Uptown, the alternative weekly that has had many incarnations over the decades, is about to get a new home.
Beginning Nov. 1, Uptown will be relaunched as a new section that will run as part of the Thursday edition of Free Press delivered to subscribers and available for sale on newsstands.
"Uptown has long been seen as the go-to guide for what’s going on in arts and entertainment in our city,’’ Free Press editor Paul Samyn said.
"We want to build on that reputation with a bold new look for Uptown that will not only help readers plan their nights out but also give them lots to think about when it comes to culture and our city."
While Uptown is moving upstairs to the Free Press newsroom from its sister publication Canstar Community News, the weekly will still be distributed in the existing Uptown boxes and racks around the city.
