The Pitch and pitch.com is Kansas City’s leading source for news, dining, arts, music and nightlife. Since starting as a music publication in 1980, the Pitch has grown to become Kansas City’s leading source of sophisticated information that readers know they can’t get anywhere else — whether it’s in-depth news and analysis about local power brokers; a rundown of who’s in and who’s out in the city’s spirited arts, music and nightlife scenes; or the skinny on famous barbecue joints and steakhouses. More than 258,000 people read the paper every month, picking it up every week at 1,400 locations throughout a seven-county region. Readers across the world also look to our Web site, www.pitch.com, to keep up with what’s happening here or to make plans whenever they’re goin’ to Kansas City. The Pitch also produces a monthly Crossroads Art Map and Monthly Exhibition Guide that corresponds with the First Fridays event in the crossroads. Each issue features a map and current exhibition listing of the Crossroads galleries, which is inserted into the 50,000 Pitch publications two days prior to First Fridays. The Pitch Street Team will also hand out the supplement each First Friday at the UMB Bank/Pitch HUB kiosk, as well as galleries and other key locations.
