The ink may dry, but the beat goes on. After 5 years, LA City Beat is closing its doors. We’ve been a champion for bold voices and a platform for uncovering the stories that shaped Los Angeles. We’re grateful to our readers and staff who made CityBeat a vibrant part of the city’s pulse. The spirit of independent journalism and the fight for truth will undoubtedly echo on.
