Editorial Fact Sheet
As we launch into National Newspaper Week and celebrate all our industry has accomplished, we encourage our members to remind their readers about how newspapers support the communities they serve. Our industry is committed to producing the “daily miracle,” whether it is the coverage provided by journalists in the field, the marketing assistance offered by sales teams, or the regular door-to-door delivery of the news product.
Advertising Fact Sheet
Shopping is an emotional experience. Finding that perfect pair of shoes, trendy new restaurant or quality home contractor is exciting for the consumer. Knowing that your advertising message appears in a quality publication and will be seen by potential purchasers is exciting for the retailer. Pennsylvania newspapers provide both audiences with what they need most.
