In terms of email advertising options, we also have Examiner+, our digital newsmagazine for Westchester, Putnam and the broader Hudson Valley. Published on the Substack platform, in Examiner+ we go deeper on issues and take a broader, more regional approach to our news coverage than we do in our print newspapers or on our traditional news website. The digital magazine also chronicles the lighter side of local life with our variety of lifestyle sections. Click here to review Examiner+ sponsorship opportunities.

Examiner Media, a group of four independent weekly newspapers, has successfully proven since its birth that print newspapers remain not just viable, but also an unmatched outlet for readers to learn about local news and for advertisers to reach targeted markets.

No other medium delivers the loyal, local and repeat audience provided by community newspapers. Community newspaper readers buy locally and are interested in local advertising. They look for restaurant ads and coupons. They buy appliances, electronics and furniture locally. They look for sales and specials at local stores. They bank locally, visit local shopping centers, and purchase cell phones and sporting goods locally. They also shop locally for groceries more than once per week.

Community newspaper readers are most interested in local news, the kind of local news available only in community newspapers. These readers are interested in local schools, local sports, local crime and safety information, neighborhood events and local business news. Examiner Media fills this need in your community.
