About Us

The Westside Current is an independent media organization that was founded on a mission to create a more informed public in the West Los Angeles community. 

Our team is dedicated to digging deep into important issues, shining a light on abuses of power and betrayals of public trust by our city and neighborhood leaders. 

The Westside Current was founded by Jamie Paige with the belief that journalism is an important part of every community. 

Our journalists are dedicated to exposing corruption, informing the public about complex issues, and using the power of journalism to create reform.

We also feel it’s important to cover different cultures that makes Venice the free- spirited, gritty, colorful community that so many of us have come to love.
