ABOUT US
   
     L.A. Zamboanga Times
(A NON-PROFIT PUBLICATION)
was established in Los Angeles on
October 12, 1986 with the main objective
of bringing news from Zamboanga City,
Philippines, to Zamboangueño communities in
the United States, Canada and other parts of
the world.
Today, our primary goal is to use
the Internet as a communication medium
to bring our people closer together
 --- wherever they may be ---
through news, photos and information.

MISSION STATEMENT
We promise to continually strive to do our best
to give our readers breaking news from our city,
dramatic photos and in-depth investigative
reports which has been the hallmarks of
L.A. Zamboanga Times since 1986.
We will continue to be vigilant as we work
and will not hesitate to question anyone---
even friends or relatives---who put their
personal interests
above that of our people.
We pledge to continue to be fair and objective
---in our pursuit of journalistic excellence---
as we have done in the past 24 years.

L.A. Zamboanga Times officially
went online on August 8, 2000
(Established in 1986)
