There have been many island papers over the years. But currently, the Put-in-Bay Gazette is the only local newspaper for Put-in-Bay, Ohio, and the Bass Islands in Lake Erie. You can find news stands in Catawba, Marblehead, Port Clinton, and various places in the Bass Islands. Advertising rates cover all locations.
The Gazette viewership is spread throughout the entire Lake Erie region and beyond but our advertising rates still remain low. In fact, over recent years, there are now subscribers to the Put-in-Bay Gazette in all 50 states!
The Gazette expects their readership number to grow exponentially with the launch of their new online platform. Showing the importance of web advertising, advertisers who have at least a quarter page print ad will also have their ad displayed on the Gazette website at no extra charge.
Businesses that run half page and full page advertisements receive prime locations on the website. All ads placed on the Gazette website and found in the archived version of the newspaper are hyperlinked to the website or social media page of that particular business.
Advertisers enjoy special rates depending on whether their ads are Color or Black&White. Full color ads are not much more expensive these days and attract a viewer’s eyes more readily. Call us for help in selecting your advertising medium.
