New Times Broward-Palm Beach is an alternative weekly newspaper; it is part of the Voice Media Group chain. The paper split off from the Miami New Times in 1997, under the auspices of then editor-in-chief Tom Walsh. Walsh was succeeded by Chuck Strouse, who was replaced in 2005 with Tony Ortega. In March 2007, Ortega was appointed as editor-in-chief of the company's flagship paper, The Village Voice. In April 2007, Robert Meyerowitz was named editor-in-chief, though he departed the following May to take an endowed chair at University of Alaska. In 2009, Eric Barton was hired as editor; in June 2012, he left the company when editorship of the paper was combined with that of Miami New Times, where Strouse is editor. Strouse is currently the editor of both papers. In September 2012, Village Voice Media executives Scott Tobias, Christine Brennan and Jeff Mars bought Village Voice Media's papers and associated web properties from its founders and formed Voice Media Group.
The editorial staff is composed of Chuck Strouse (editor); Deirdra Funcheon (managing editor); Alex Rodriguez (web editor); Liz Tracy (music editor); Chris Joseph (news blogger), Terrence McCoy and Kyle Swenson (staff writers); Rebecca Dittmar (arts & culture editor); and Falyn Freyman (clubs editor).
