The Wedge Newspaper is the official publication of the South Wedge area. It began publication as a one-page flyer in 1978. It grew into the South Wedge Newsletter 1979-1981. In 1982, it morphed again into The S.O.S. News and later that year became The Wedge. It's motto today is, "The Wedge Gets Read."
The not-for-profit periodical is published by the South Wedge Planning Committee (SWPC), a non-profit organization serving the South Wedge. It is printed bimonthly (February/March, April/May, June/July, August/September, October/November, and December/January).
The local paper covers news about all things South Wedge and beyond in southeast Rochester, SWPC's programs and projects which include the South Wedge Farmers Market, The South Wedge Victory Gardens, and other house projects such as house rehabs for first time home buyers.
The Wedge profiles new businesses in the South Wedge and other southeast neighborhoods and offers several columns "Talking with my Mouth Full," (a restaurant review by Nathaniel Mich), "A Life Together" (a column about building a soulful community by Rev. Matthew Martin Nickoloff), "Kid's Corner" by educator Drew Beeman, Community Builders, Business Buzz, South Wedge Social Register, and more.) In 2012 it added a bi-monthly comic "Wedgies," later renamed "The North Wedge," by artist and graphic novelist Justin Hubbell.
The paper prints 5,300 copies which are distributed through businesses in the South Wedge and Greater Rochester.
