History and profileEdit

FCW was established in 1987.[1] The magazine is published weekly[2] and is headquartered in Vienna, Virginia.[3] It was part of FCW Media Group.[2] It is currently owned by California-based 1105 Government Information Group, a privately held company backed by two private equity firms: Nautic Partners and Alta Communications.[4]
