The Riverfront Times (RFT) is a free progressive weekly newspaper in St. Louis, in the U.S. state of Missouri that consists of local politics, music, arts and dining news in the print edition and daily updates to blogs and photo galleries on its website. As of June 2008, the Riverfront Times has an ABC-audited weekly circulation of 81,276 copies.[1]


The paper was founded in 1977 by Ray Hartmann[2][3] who, along with co-owner Mark Vittert, sold the newspaper in 1998 to New Times Media[4][5][6] (later known, following a 2006 merger, as Village Voice Media).[7][8] In September 2012, Village Voice Media executives Scott Tobias, Christine Brennan and Jeff Mars agreed to purchase Village Voice Media's papers and associated web properties from its founders and formed Voice Media Group.[9] In 2015, Euclid Media Group acquired the Times from Voice Media Group.[10]

The paper has received more than three dozen awards from the Missouri Press Association,[citation needed] along with the group's Gold Cup.[citation needed] The paper and website also currently feature a weekly syndicated column by relationship and sex advice writer Dan Savage. In the past the paper carried Chuck Sheppard's News of the Weird column.

In June 2019, editor-in-chief Sarah Fenske announced her departure after being selected to host St. Louis on the Air on St. Louis Public Radio.[11] News editor Doyle Murphy was selected as interim editor-in-chief.[12]
