Combined, the 10 newspapers owned or represented by Blank Slate Media have a combined circulation of more than 36,000 and a readership of more than 120,000.

With a separate newspaper for each community, businesses can target their markets and eliminate wasteful circulation – making us the most cost-effective way to advertise.

A separate newspaper or edition for each community also allows us to target readers with the news that is most important to them - news about where they live, where they own a home, where their kids go to school and where they shop.

Combined with professionally written and edited stories and a modern design featuring extensive use of four-color, Blank Slate Media has become a must-read in the communities it covers.

Blank Slate also uses 21st century technology to provide multiplatform, hyperlocal editorial coverage of villages, towns and cities in Nassau County and the latest ways to market and sell online.
