AltMedia publishes the City Hub, Sydney’s last remaining independent community newspaper -- providing vital coverage for the inner city. In 1995 the first issue of the City Hub hit the streets vowing to “print the news and raise hell”. Over the last two decades the Hub has promoted more than a half million performances, events and shows. We have broken news and offered alternative views to Sydney’s mainstream media outlets. We are not your everyday paper.
