Truth be told, we never stopped being The Independent. You called us that, and we continued to refer to ourselves as The Independent. So we’re simplifying all of our lives and going back to our roots. When this newspaper was founded in mid-2003 it was The Independent, an alt-weekly; several years ago, we began publishing the print edition monthly and thought it necessary to let you know that. So we became IND Monthly. Kind of clunky, we know now. But it’s gone.
You will still see IND Media on our corporate materials and business cards, as we have a vibrant online presence at theind.com and acadianabusiness.com for The Independent and ABiz, respectively, put out more than 20 additional niche pubs and produce nearly a dozen events from our small office at 551 Jefferson St. — all of which makes us THE essential information source for Acadiana’s professionals and community leaders in print, online and through events.
