Village Voice Media is group of metropolitan newsweeklies around the U.S. VVM publishes papers in seventeen of the country's most vibrant cities.

Today's VVM is the child of a 2006 merger between the original Village Voice chain, which had six papers, and New Times Newspapers, which had eleven. The company's namesake Village Voice in New York City was founded in 1955. As the nation's first and largest alternative newsweekly, the Voice is the winner of three Pulitzer Prizes, and today maintains the same tradition of no-holds-barred reporting and cultural coverage that it first embraced more than fifty years ago. Beginning in the 1990s, the Voice extended its influence by acquiring five like-minded publications across the country: LA Weekly, OC Weekly in Orange County, Seattle Weekly, Minneapolis City Pages and the Nashville Scene.

New Times was founded in 1970 and grew to become the largest alternative chain in the country prior to its merger with the Voice. The company started with Phoenix New Times, whose writers have won the Arizona Press Club's Journalist of the Year award eight out of the past eleven years. In 1983, the company began expanding, first acquiring Westword in Denver and ultimately growing to include Miami New Times, the Dallas Observer, the Houston Press, SF Weekly in San Francisco, the Riverfront Times in St. Louis, The Pitch in Kansas City, and New Times Broward-Palm Beach in Ft. Lauderdale.

Village Voice Media also includes the Ruxton Group, which sells advertising for 35 newsweeklies in major metropolitan markets and additionally represents more than 1,500 college newspapers. Ruxton offers further access to young, urban readers via a range of integrated communications strategies including event marketing and creative promotions.
