About Us

The Montecito Journal Media Group is a publishing company serving Montecito, Summerland, Santa Barbara and beyond. We publish our namesake weekly newspaper, Montecito Journal, a semi-annual glossy edition of the same name and the bi-monthly Santa Barbara Sentinel. In 2020 we are celebrating the launch of The Giving List, a curated guide to the area’s philanthropic community.

Since the inception of the Montecito Journal in 1995, we have been dedicated to being the best little paper in America covering the best little community anywhere. And we have strived to honor that commitment as our portfolio has grown and our area of coverage has widened. We believe that community is more than a place, it is also a gathering of diverse voices, views and life stories.
