The Boston Phoenix is an alternative weekly publication in Boston, Massachusetts that emphasizes arts and entertainment coverage, as well as alternative political viewpoints. It began in 1966 as a four-page arts and entertainment publication.
In addition to publishing its flagship publication, now of a more traditional length, the Phoenix also publishes a biweekly publication about Boston nightlife called STUFF@night Magazine . In addition, it operates an alternative music radio station, WFNX, which went on the air in 1983.
In 1988, the company that owns the Phoenix, Phoenix Media/Communications Group , bought a similar publication in neighboring Rhode Island called the NewPaper, which is now the Providence Phoenix . In 1999, PM/CG branched out into Portland, Maine by creating the Portland Phoenix .
