MEDIA & PRESS
PROFILE OF GAMBIT
is a New Orleans, Louisiana-based free alternative weekly newspaper established in 1981.
Gambit features reporting about local politics, news, food and drink, arts, music, film, events, environmental issues and other topics, as well as listings. Gambit publishes 36,000 papers each Tuesday, which are distributed to 400 locations in the New Orleans metro area beginning Sunday afternoon.
In January 2009, the paper changed its name from Gambit Weekly, to which it had been renamed in 1996, back to Gambit, the name under which it had been founded in 1981. On April 9, 2018, Georges Media, the holding company for The New Orleans Advocate, purchased GambIit.

Wikipedia Regular features include "Opening Gambit" (political news briefs), and "Thumbs Up & Thumbs Down," weekly awards for the city's "heroes and zeroes."
Gambit also publishes a weekly editorial and issues endorsements in many political races, with two notable exceptions: it does not endorse in national elections, nor does it endorse in judicial elections (on a longstanding political belief that judges should be appointed, not elected).
The paper sponsors the annual Big Easy Theater Awards and Big Easy Music Awards, honoring New Orleans' best performing artists.
On October 1, 2007, Gambit launched Blog of New Orleans to supplement its website Best of New Orleans with daily updates on New Orleans news, politics, arts, music, sports, cuisine and local culture. Its other publications include CUE, a monthly home and fashion magazine and BRIDE & GROOM, a twice-annual wedding guide.
The paper's columnists include political editor Clancy DuBos, who is also a political analyst and commentator on WWL-TV. Past columnists include Chris Rose, Jeremy Alford, Andrei Codrescu and Ronnie Virgets. Other former writers and editors include Michael Tisserand, author of the books The Kingdom of Zydeco and Sugarcane Academy, Scott Jordan, former spokesman for the Louisiana Democratic Party, and Rich Collins, a member of the children's music group Imagination Movers.
