Along with a small group of friends, Alan Leveritt started the Arkansas Times with $200 in capital in 1974 and, as publisher, has been at the helm of the publication ever since. The Times has evolved from a monthly magazine to a statewide alternative weekly alongside El Latino, a Spanish language weekly; Arkansas AutoBuyer, a weekly automotive publication; Savvy Kids, a monthly magazine targeted at mothers; and Arkansas Wild, a bi-monthly outdoor lifestyle magazine. The company also publishes a number of other titles, including Little Rock Visitor's Guide. The paper's Arkansas Blog, under the leadership of Editor Max Brantley, has also developed a strong following on its website,
