Glendale Independent covers the West Valley’s largest city, known for its professional sports, shopping and entertainment offerings.

Glendale boasts a population of more than 240,000 and houses the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes. The Fiesta Bowl plays in the city’s state-of-the-art University of Phoenix Stadium, which also hosted the Super Bowl twice.

The Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers report for spring training in the city-owned Camelback Ranch stadium.

Glendale sports two regional shopping attractions – Arrowhead Towne Center to the north and Tanger Outlets within the Westgate Entertainment District – and the popular hunting, fishing and camping store Cabela’s. Tohono O’odham Nation’s Desert Diamond Casino, the first Indian gaming in the Northwest Valley is located a mile from the Westgate entertainment hub.

Although tourism remains a focal point to the city, it is also home to higher educational institutions, including Arizona State University’s West campus, Midwestern University and Glendale Community College.

In 2016, The Glendale Today merged with the Arrowhead Ranch Independent, established in 1995, delivering a combined circulation of 20,000 as the Glendale Independent. The monthly print newspaper focuses on schools, business, neighborhoods, city government and public safety. The free newspaper is delivered in mailboxes in North Glendale.

The digital daily newspaper covers the entire City of Glendale, delivering readers stories on issues affecting their quality of life and promoting involvement in their local neighborhoods through activism, entertainment and business news.
