About Us

(Updated 11/28/16) Launched in January 2010, ARLnow.com is the place for the latest news, views and things to do around Arlington, Virginia. Helmed by editor and founder Scott Brodbeck, a Fairlington resident and former news writer/producer at two local TV stations, ARLnow.com seeks to distinguish itself by providing original, enterprising, up-to-the-minute local coverage.

Our full-time staff includes sales director Meghan McMahon. Our office is located in Clarendon.

A pioneering local, independent online news organization, ARLnow.com’s coverage and business model has been discussed in university classrooms and at national conferences. ARLnow.com is a news partner of WTOP radio. We are also a proud member of the Local Independent Online News Publishers group.

We welcome all feedback and story suggestions.

While Arlington may be the United States’ smallest self-governing county, we receive a lot of email and requests for coverage. As much as we would like to respond to every email, we simply don’t have the resources to do so. You might not hear back from us, but rest assured that your email has been read and we appreciate the information.
