We’re Taking Off!

From Bondi in the east to Balmain in the west, no one reaches young urban dwellers like the Alternative Media Group. For years inner city readers have depended upon and discussed the City News, the Bondi View and the City Hub. Due to popular demand, the City Hub has doubled its frequency from fortnightly to weekly. And now with the roll out of the Inner West Independent, targeting the affluent suburbs of Leichhardt Council, the Alternative Media Group delivers even more young, inner city consumers than ever before. We are Sydney’s only smart alternative.

More than a half million people live in Inner Sydney and half of the urban population is between the ages of 20 and 44, making the region the largest concentration of young people in the whole of Australia. Inner Sydney residents are in their prime consuming years. They spend more and they have more free time to spend. Each month, the Alternative Media Group publishes four independent publications exclusively targeting the inner city’s trendiest precincts: the Sydney City News, the City Hub, the Bondi View and now the Inner West Independent. From the Newtown’s hip dining strip to Coogee’s cool surf scene, from the late night pulsing beat of a trendy Kings Cross club to a beachside big brekkie at Bronte, the Alternative Media Group reaches young urban dwellers where they live, work and play.


Now you can reach young urban trendsetters at a fraction of the cost of Sydney’s other mega newspaper chains. Each of our four publications carries unique, sought after local community news while providing the most comprehensive what’s on guide to the entire urban hub. And when you advertise with the Alternative Media Group weekly, your business will automatically appear across our four inner city publications. Over the course of a month, your ad will appear weekly in the City News and in the City Hub, and fortnightly in both the Bondi View and the Inner West Independent. And while you will only be charged for four ads, your ad will be published twelve times. Now there are three as many reasons to advertise with the Alternative Media Group each every week.
