New Orleans CityBusiness is a weekly business newspaper headquartered in Metairie, Louisiana, United States.

Launched in 1980, CityBusiness covers the metropolitan New Orleans area, including the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain.

New Orleans Publishing Group, owned by Minneapolis-based Dolan Co., publishes CityBusiness,[1] the monthly North Shore Report and the Daily Journal of Commerce. NOPG also produces custom publications and an annual Book of Lists.

Hurricane Katrina[edit]

Hurricane Katrina forced CityBusiness out of its offices on the 14th floor of Heritage Plaza, 111 Veterans Memorial Blvd., when the Aug. 29, 2005, storm bore down on the city. The newspaper never stopped printing, despite the storm. Staff members were able to publish the paper out of the offices of The (Maryland) Daily Record, CityBusiness’ Baltimore-based sister publication. Staff members scattered across the United States filed stories to fill the paper’s pages and update the Web site. While Heritage Plaza remained closed – it did not reopen until November 2005 – CityBusiness operated out of offices in Baton Rouge.


New Orleans CityBusiness hosts five annual events, all coinciding with special issues of the paper. These include: Women of the Year, Best Places to Work, Health Care Heroes, Leadership in Law and Money Makers.
