Herald Journal Publishing is in its second decade of current ownership, and is pleased to have experienced about 500% growth since the beginning.
We've been able to do that through a firm commitment to getting results for our customers with a variety of media products, ultimately led by the tried-and-true community newspaper - the media source people turn to when it's needed most.
Our community newspapers date back to the 1800s, and will continue to lead the way despite - and in cooperation with - new technology and changing lifestyles for many years to come.
Large "news hole" - unlike many other papers, we strive to get all local content in each week, using as many pages as we need to do so. Last year, we averaged 92 pages per week in the three newspapers.
We carry about 10,000 advertising orders per year in our newspapers. It's where the leading local businesses go first. Number of readers per week (based on national average per copy): HJ 7,000, ED 5,600, DEL 4,500
Ever since the Internet became available locally, our newspapers have been leaders in developing web traffic.
Getting our newspaper content to even more readers, we have clearly become the most visited local site, hands down. Although the Internet makes us accessible to anyone anywhere, it's still local people who have the most interest here and create the most traffic. More eyeballs mean more promotional opportunities.
