About Us

The Ingleside Light is an online news publisher that strives to provide useful and thoughtful journalism for San Francisco's greater Ingleside neighborhood.


Our approach is based in the city's historic tradition of the neighborhood press established in the late 1960s.

The Ingleside Light was founded by Alex Mullaney as a monthly print newspaper in September 2008. For many years, it was called The Ingleside-Excelsior Light to serve the neighboring Excelsior and Outer Mission neighborhoods. In late 2019, The Ingleside Light became a purely digital publication and returned its focus to Ingleside.

We're pioneering a for-profit, reader-funded business model that, if successful, could be used to revive the city's independent neighborhood press.
