PHOENIX — A free weekly newspaper is launching in Queen Creek this Sunday to serve the town of more than 68,000 residents.

The Queen Creek Tribune, owned by Times Media Group, will launch April 24 with a local focus on current events in the East Valley town, according to a press release.

Steve Strickbine, president of Times Media Group, said in a press release that residents and local business owners have expressed a need to know more about what’s happening in the community, at Town Hall and in their schools.

“The Queen Creek Tribune will focus on those signature elements of community life while at the same time, giving local businesses more and better options to connect with their customers,” Strickbine said.

While breaking news can be found on QueenCreekTribune.com, approximately 20,000 weekly printed copies will be delivered every Sunday and also found in high-traffic areas where residents can pick up the paper for free.

A full-time reporter will report on town happenings, ranging from public safety and education news, to local events and obituaries, Strickbine said.

“Queen Creek has grown up fast, more than doubling in population over the past decade, and that growth has created a void when it comes to local journalism — a void we’re going to fill,” Strickbine said.
