 Pennsylvania Newspapers Statewide Marketing Campaign

The Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association has developed the 'Pennsylvania Newspapers' marketing campaign, in conjunction with National Newspaper Week, to demonstrate that no media works harder than newspapers to provide readers with credible information about what matters most - news about local people, local government, local happenings, and local businesses - all captured by members of the local community.


The campaign materials include a series of five customizable print and digital ads, a corresponding editorial from PNA President Mark Cohen, and a newspaper trivia quiz for readers. Click here to access the materials.








In honor of National Newspaper Week, please send your editorials and commentaries that highlight the strength of newspapers to Please also use PNA's 'Pennsylvania Newspapers' marketing campaign materials in your National Newspaper Week promotion.
