The Santa Fe Reporter (SFR) is an alternative weekly newspaper published in Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States. It features reports on local news, politics, art and culture. Both the politics and art sections of the Santa Fe Reporter are popular in Santa Fe. The paper is published on Wednesdays. Since 1997, the Reporter has been owned and published by Portland, Oregon-based City of Roses Newspaper Company, which also publishes Willamette Week. Since May 2011, the paper's editor has been Alexa Schirtzinger.
The Santa Fe Reporter frequently publishes special issues that range in topic from Love and Sex to Food and Fitness, as well as several seasonal guides and two magazine-style supplements, the Annual Manual and Restaurant Guide.
In 2007, Dan Frosch, now with The New York Times, won the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' first-place prize (for under 60,000 circulation) for Investigative Reporting for his 15-part series, "The Wexford Files". The story, which investigated health care in New Mexico prisons, was instrumental in governor Bill Richardson's decision to end New Mexico's contract with Wexford.
The Santa Fe Reporter hosts several events in Santa Fe, year-round. The Best of Santa Fe party, in conjunction with an issue dedicated to the winners of an online, reader-driven poll, is an always popular event. The Santa Fe Summer Block Party, which began as a celebration of the Reporter's first 30 years before becoming an annual event, features live local music, fire dancers and an array of community business and organizations. The Reporter also hosts popular Valentine's Day and Halloween parties with local DJs and bands. The Reporter celebrated its 35th anniversary in June 2009.
In 2008, at the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN) awards ceremony the Santa Fe Reporter received seven awards for editorial layout, illustration, arts criticism, columns and blogs. In 2009, the Reporter won five AAN awards, for its politics blog, for illustrations, for food writing, for "Innovation" and for the 2008 election blog, "Swing State of Mind".
