About Us

The Catalina Islander is a weekly community newspaper serving Avalon, Catalina Island (California), and its mainland friends. The Islander has been continuously published since 1914. We proudly report on the local news, sports, and community events that occur in Avalon, Two Harbors, and many of our common mainland ports and everything in between. A subsidiary of CommunityMedia Corp., the Catalina Islander is committed to reporting on, gathering, and delivering timely news and informational content in print and online, covering the entire Island and region surrounding it. The Catalina Islander publishes and distributes to 5,500 different locations, both on and off the Island, every Friday. In addition to our weekly publication, we also produce the annual In Room Magazine, which is distributed year-round.
