The Catalina Islander is a weekly community newspaper serving Avalon, Catalina Island (California), and its mainland friends. Rooted deeply in our community for nearly a century, The Islander has been continuously published since 1914. We proudly report on the local news, sports, and community events that occur in Avalon, at Two Harbors, many of our common mainland ports and everything in between. The staff at the Catalina Islander has effectively expanded our reach, integrating both digital and social media platforms and enabling our readership to access our content through various forms of media while significantly increasing our audience.
The Catalina Islander is committed to reporting on, gathering, and delivering timely news and informational content in print and online, covering the entire Island and region surrounding it. Our readership is our most valuable asset and continues to grow daily, solidifying our position as the only credible news and information source in our local market. The Catalina Islander publishes and distributes to 5,500 different locations, both on and off the Island, every Friday. In addition to our weekly publication, we also produce several special publications throughout the year. These include publications such as our In Room Magazine, which gets distributed to over 20,000 readers twice each year.
