The Downtown Devil is a student-run online publication dedicated to providing news quickly, accurately and completely to the downtown Phoenix community.

The Downtown Devil began in late 2008 when five ASU freshmen decided to get together and start an online publication to provide full coverage of ASU’s Downtown campus.

Since its launch, the Downtown Devil has expanded its mission to provide hyperlocal coverage of news that impacts the downtown Phoenix area, as well as covering the many voices that make up this community.

The Downtown Devil is operated solely by students at ASU. The publication is owned by four graduates of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication who, along with a staff of more than 80 students, handle the business and editorial sides of the Downtown Devil.
