(Updated 1/9/19) Launched in January 2010, ARLnow.com is the place for the latest news, views and things to do around Arlington, Virginia. We seek to distinguish ourselves by providing original, enterprising, up-to-the-minute local coverage.
Our office is located in Ballston.
ARLnow’s mission is to connect and improve our local community — residents, workers, local businesses, nonprofits and government — via high quality, original journalism, photography, events, user engagement and advertising.
A pioneering local, independent online news and lifestyle publication, ARLnow’s coverage and business model have been discussed in university classrooms and at national conferences. We are a proud member of the Local Independent Online News Publishers group.
Drop us a line: [email protected].
We welcome all feedback and story suggestions, though there are some types of stories we typically do not cover, including:
- High school or youth sports
- Local authors and books
- Graduations and academic honors
- Executive hires and promotions
- Stories not related to Arlington
Also, we typically do not attend events or cover non-breaking news on weekends.
Our news team does not have a phone line for inbound calls. ALL PRESS RELEASES, PR PITCHES AND OTHER INQUIRIES SHOULD BE SENT TO [email protected].
If you’re seeking coverage of an event, please consider adding it to our event calendar.
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.
