About Us

The Bellevue Reporter publishes weekly on Friday and reaches more than 40,000 homes and businesses in Bellevue and the nearby cities/communities of Medina, Clyde Hill, Hunts Point, Yarrow Point, Evergreen Point and Beaux Arts. In all, 80 percent of residences and businesses get the Bellevue Reporter delivered to them. In addition, the Reporter publishes The Scene, an arts and entertainment magazine for the Eastside on the last Friday of each month.

Bellevue is the fifth largest city in the state of Washington and lies to the east of Seattle across Lake Washington. The city was recently named by Fortune Small Business as the best place in the country to live and launch a business. If it happens in Bellevue, the Bellevue Reporter is there to cover and report on it.
