A free arts and news weekly distributed on Wednesday's throughout northern and central Vermont.
"Plenty of people didn't think Seven Days would last longer than its name: a week. It seemed like political suicide to go up against a Gannett-owned daily and two weeklies — one of which we had created — in a small, media-saturated market.
At the news-oriented Vermont Times, we created the arts paper Vox, only to discover five months later that both papers were for sale. We decided to start over and do our own. We were convinced that Vermonters would embrace a smart, edgy — and locally owned — alternative to the mainstream media.
On September 6, 1995, the debut issue of Seven Days hit the streets. Two months later, Peter Freyne brought his popular column, "Inside Track" to Seven Days, making the paper a must-read for Vermont's political junkies in and out of the Statehouse.
We think nothing reflects community and knits it together like a free, independent, Vermont-centric newspaper. We are delighted and honored that Seven Dayshas become a "bulletin board" that links Vermonters through stories, listings, letters and ads. Our success is a testament to the place in which we live, our readers, and of course to the businesses that advertise in Seven Days." From the Seven Days website.
