About Us

The Public is Western New York’s true alternative media source, offering an honest and entertaining look at a fast-changing region and the whole spectrum of its culture—from politics to theater, books to visual arts, music to food and drink.

We deliver news and art and conversation about everything you care about—daily online, weekly in print, and hour-by-hour on social media. We’re your Public. You’re our public. We’ve got stories to tell, and so do you. Let’s tell them together.
