The Fountain Hills Times
The Fountain Hills Times is an independently owned and operated local newspaper published each Wednesday. The paper is delivered to some 4,800 homes and businesses in Fountain Hills, the Verdes and Fort McDowell Yavapai Community.
The Times started as a tabloid then later was changed to its current broadsheet format. The printed version boasts color on nearly every page, as well as several sections including news, sports, education, entertainment, religion and social, all focusing on Fountain Hills and its neighbors.
Let’s Go! is part of Western States Publishers’ family of publications. We began as a monthly printed tabloid. In 2015, we moved out of the print world with Let’s Go! and took to the Internet. Some of our content appears in The Fountain Hills Times in print, while special posts appear on our Let’s Go! page (fhtimes.com/letsgo). Still an arts and entertainment oriented piece, we now focus on activities in both Fountain Hills and throughout the state. We have advertising opportunities on this page, as well as occasion for editorial submissions.
Fountain Hills & the Verde Communities Verde Telephone Directory
The telephone directory, which serves Fountain Hills, The Verde Communities and Fort McDowell was started by Western States Publishers in 1976. The directory provides business listings in nearly 400 categories, as well as white page listings for residents who wish to have their telephone numbers and addresses published in the annual book. The telephone directory comes out in March of each year.
Fountain Hills Community Guide
The Fountain Hills Community Guide provides detailed information to visitors and residents about the town. It is a useful move-in guide and an informational publication for everything from places of worship to schools to hiking trails and shopping centers.
HOME is published once a year in the fall, offering information about real estate, construction, remodeling, gardening and more. Readership reaches throughout the Fountain Hills area and into northeast Scottsdale.
The online edition of The Fountain Hills Times, www.fhtimes.com, has a number of features available at no charge, while also providing a full digital version available through paid subscription. An additional 2,500 readers access fhtimes.com each week.
The Fountain Hills Times is a member of the National Newspaper Association and the Arizona Newspapers Association. The Times is the recipient of numerous awards in Arizona Newspapers Association’s Better Newspapers Contest, as well as awards sponsored by the national association.
While the newspaper does not place emphasis on winning awards, we are glad to be honored by our peers. Over the years, you could say we have done well.
