About The Santa Monica Daily Press

It has to be one of the most referenced places in film and literature, but beyond the Hollywood glamour, it also has a very good reputation for social activism and social responsibility. Santa Monica belongs to the paradise that we call Southern California, and on a good day, residents and tourists, alike, can take in the Pier, enjoy the breeze off the Pacific, and can end their day at one of the city’s eating establishments. Like many cities in the Los Angeles area, Santa Monica has a vibe that has come to define it.

This vibe is especially conveyed in Santa Monica (SM) Daily Press. The paper is a micro-daily and the only one in the city that is a free, local newspaper. Those who happen to get their hands on a copy can read about local and business news, sports, entertainment, and community links. The paper can also be accessed online at

The Santa Monica Daily Press History

The paper was started almost eighteen years ago in 2001 by a two journalist and a publisher. The paper was launched after the three felt there was a need to provide Santa Monica residents with a free daily that concentrated on news related to the local area. Even though it was one of the worst times to start a paper, the three managed to successfully launch the paper.

In a community of voices, SM Daily Press is in tune with local events and politics and can be a voice for your business. Get your business in SM Daily Press by sending a press release. PR Distribution is partnered with SM Daily Press and/or with their content syndication partner(s).
