Corporate Stuff

As the third largest newspaper in the Tampa Bay, Florida area, Creative Loafing Tampa offers readers a valuable alternative to the two mainstream daily publications. Our sister paper, the Creative Loafing Sarasota offers the same great journalism for the Sarasota-Brandenton market.

Our award-winning news stories are rooted in a commitment to the community and an independent perspective that puts the greater interests of that community first.

In addition to a comprehensive listing of local happenings covering everything from gallery openings to sporting events, CL offers Floridians the most respected and authoritative critics on the subjects of food, film, theater and music.

Plus, we're funny.

A tradition of spirited and thoughtful journalism and indispensable entertainment information has made Creative Loafing a vital voice to readers along the Gulf Coast.
