About LEO Weekly

Publishing Louisville's arts and entertainment news, community-focused stories, and colorful local commentary since 1990.

The Louisville Eccentric Observer (LEO) was founded in 1990 as a free source of a wide range of opinions and commentary on current affairs, as well as a guide to local and regional entertainment and recreation opportunities.

Through the years, LEO Weekly has evolved into the area’s most urbane and challenging newsweekly, including reportage on topics often avoided by mainstream media. In addition, LEO Weekly publishes only locally written reviews of books, movies, theater and other artistic performances, musical recordings and local musicians.

LEO Weekly is distributed free every Wednesday through a network of more than 250 locations in Louisville and Southern Indiana. LEO Weekly is a member of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies.
