The Ingleside Light started a monthly print newspaper in September 2008. For many years, it was called the Ingleside-Excelsior Light to serve the Excelsior and Outer Mission neighborhoods. In 2019, the Ingleside Light was restarted as a purely digital publication focusing on its original territory.

Today, the Ingleside Light is a reader-funded journalism operation that serves the news and information needs of San Francisco’s greater Ingleside neighborhood.
