City Hub

The City Hub celebrates its birthday with a new website

24 year transition from first edition to new webiste

By Lawrence Gibbons

To mark the 24th anniversary of the City Hub we have launched a new website: cityhubsydney.com.au.  The old Altmedia website has given way to a revamped site with the same alternative inner-city news, independent views and cutting-edge arts and entertainment reviews you have come to expect over the years.

A lot has happened here at our Ultimo offices in the last few months. In addition to launching a new website, we have taken on a new roommate: the Star Observer, Australia’s oldest and largest LGBTQI publication is now produced out of the same offices as the City Hub.

The first edition of the City Hub hit the street in August 1995. Over the years we have adopted other independent titles in need of a home. The Bondi View, The Inner West Independent and the City News remain as stand-alone blogs with relevant news for vocal locals on our site.  And the arts and entertainment sections that appear in the print edition of the City Hub: Stage, Screen, Scene and Sound are now easy to find on our new homepage.

As the City Hub approaches a quarter of a century of publishing, we remain inner Sydney’s only independent news outlet. Each year we celebrate our anniversary by producing our annual celebration of the best of Sydney, our quirky guide to the best city on planet earth. Thanks for supporting the City Hub and the advertisers who make producing independent news coverage possible.
