The Pasadena Outlook has been covering Pasadena since the fall of 2008. We have nurtured relationships with the large, but homogeneous community of private elementary, middle and high school families, with Pasadena city officials and with the incredible array of philanthropic organizations that call the Rose City home.
The Pasadena Outlook is delivered by mail every Thursday to more than 17,400 homes and businesses in the Pasadena area. An additional 5,100 copies are delivered to locations throughout the Pasadena area, including various private schools, real estate offices and many of the local Starbucks stores.
The La Cañada Flintridge Outlook has been publishing since 1998. We have extensive, long-standing contacts with city government, with the La Cañada Unified School District, and with sports activities at all levels. We maintain active relationships with the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA, Verdugo Hills Hospital, Descanso Gardens Guild, Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station, the L.A. County Fire Department’s local stations, local artistic and performing groups and many other groups in the community.

The Outlook doesn’t ignore the big issues, but we make room for the small, but ultimately more meaningful issues that land right in our reader’s backyards: what is happening in my community and who is involved?
The Outlook answers important questions, such as:
- Who is planning the next charity gala?
- Which charity truly emphasizes aid for the homeless?
- Where can I learn about parenting skills?
- When is the next high school band concert?
- Why did the local football coach take a job in another city?
Outlook Newspapers believes that strong community newspapers are essential to building strong communities. We strive to produce economically sound newspapers that foster pride in the communities they serve and to make a difference in the quality of life for residents and merchants.
Our Motto: Building strong communities, one smile at a time.
