The Overcast is a multi-award-winning media body in St. John’s, NL.
Best known for its monthly print magazine, its website, TheOvercast.ca, is also home to the most comprehensive event listings in St. John’s, the St. John’s Eats dinning and review directory, and other interactive, user-generated features like The Bullhorn (for rants, confessions, and burning questions), and the #SeeNL hashtag for snaps of local culture.
We differ from other local media by avoiding “This Just Happened” breaking news, and focusing more on what just happened, and running general interest stories about the people, places, history, and culture that make this province the place it is, for better or worse.
The Overcast also administers the $12,500 Albedo Grant to help entrepreneurs get their big idea off the ground, as well as Newfoundland’s richest award for a local album of the year: The Borealis Music Prize.
Our most recent awards include the City of St. John’s Discovery Award, MusicNL’s Media Person of the Year and Outstanding Company of the Year, an East Coast Music Award nomination for Media Outlet of the Year, and a shout out from London’s The Monocle that called our “smart, informed and interesting” paper “the one to read in St. John’s.”
