Gonzo Today is an internet-based publication inspired by the writing and reporting style of journalism by Hunter Thompson . Among other pursuits, Gonzo Today interviews a wide range of notable persons, as noted by the New York Times obituary of poet and artist Heathcote Williams [2] and includes other interview subjects such as artists Clayton Patterson [3] , Ambrosia band members Mary Harris and Burleigh Drummond [4] and trained CIA agent and whistleblower , John Kiriakou . [5]

Gonzo Today features a banner created by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas illustrator Ralph Steadman , [6] who has been interviewed by Gonzo Today. [7] Several Gonzo Today articles have been reprinted and archived by the International Times . [8]

As of July 2017 Gonzo Today lists and poet Ron Whitehead [9] as its poetry editor. Whitehead, a Thompson Thompson friend and associate, has worked for many years to honor Thompson’s legacy, including an annual spring “Gonzofest” held in Louisville, Kentucky . [10] Gonzo Today has been acknowledged as a contributor to Gonzofest. [11]

Founder and editor Clayton Luce, his wife and co-founder Jaslyn, editor-in-chief David Pratt and art director Joey Feldman played major roles in the formative years with a substantial group of contributors and artists. [12] Luce and Whitehead’s travels to Thompson’s interview and his author Juan Thompson have been documented in the Louisville paper LEO Weekly . [13]

In 2017 the editor-in-chief was Kyle K. Mann, and the publisher was Kidman J. Williams. [14]
