About Us

The Redmond Reporter is Redmond's own community newspaper and is mailed out to more than 25,000 residents every Friday. Our thriving publication covers everything Redmond, including city government, important school issues, the vibrant arts and entertainment scene, the growing business district and action-packed sporting events. But most important, we feature the residents who shape this community. Former publisher Denis Law launched the Redmond Reporter in 2001 as a monthly publication. The Redmond Reporter was an immediate favorite with both the readers and advertisers and expanded to bimonthly in January 2002. The Redmond Reporter continued to grow and now is delivered to Redmond homes every Friday, providing its readers with more of the quality journalism they enjoy. The instant growth shows that readers appreciate the local coverage and advertising provided by the Redmond Reporter's hard-working staff. Redmond is located about 15 miles east of Seattle between Washington's majestic Cascade mountain range and the Puget Sound. With 34 parks, including King County's popular Marymoor Park, and over 25 miles of trails, Redmond is known for its natural beauty. In addition, Redmond enjoys a diverse and growing business district. The community is home to some of the major high-tech firms in the country, including Microsoft, and Nintendo of America. Redmond is also the headquarters of such businesses as Eddie Bauer and Genie Industries. Redmond's strong retail sector is anchored by Redmond Town Center, a 1.4 million square foot mixed-use development that includes retail stores, restaurants, and commercial offices. From an original incorporated area of three square blocks, the city has expanded to its present size of over 16.6 square miles. Redmond is led by Mayor John Marchione, who has lived in Redmond since age 4. As Redmond moves forward, the challenge will be to welcome Redmond's inevitable growth while preserving Redmond's rich heritage, Marchione said shortly after taking office in January. "I'm very passionate about Redmond and very hopeful that Redmond can continue improving as a city that is sustainable and livable," he said.
