Support our education reporting.

The first $10,000 donated will be matched by national nonprofit Report for America. All money raised will go directly to salary and benefits for the Monitor’s education reporter through the summer of 2022. The Monitor remains committed to the principles of truth, democracy and trust.

At a time when TV and radio audiences are fragmented and direct mail costs are rising, nothing beats a daily newspaper for reach, affordability, flexibility and impact.


Newspapers offer the broadest reach of any mass medium:

  • An average issue of a daily or Sunday newspaper reaches more adults than an average half-hour of prime-time television.
  • In central NH, the Monitor's daily and Sunday readership is more than three times the number of people who listen to the region's most-popular radio station.
  • You can hit every household with direct mail, but is anyone paying attention? Research indicates anywhere from half to three-quarters of all direct mail goes straight to the trash, unopened and unread. But newspaper ads and circulars are sought out by consumers.

More info:


  • Newspaper advertising costs less per thousand readers than TV, direct mail and radio advertising.
  • Newspaper campaigns require no out-of-pocket costs for creative materials. We’ll even build your ad for free.
  • Newspaper campaigns can be tailored to any budget. The medium offers a variety of ad sizes to fit your budget ad goals, from a one-column-inch ad to two full-page ads side by side called a double-truck.
  • Because newspaper advertising is so affordable, it is an ideal medium to build “top of mind” awareness with frequency campaigns.

Flexibility & timeliness

  • Newspapers offer enormous flexibility in content, design, placement and frequency. Plus, newspapers are a “rapid response” medium – you can refine your message or change your whole campaign in just two days.
  • Ads can be almost any size and shape, including L-shapes and wraparounds.
  • Add color to make your ad pop off the page.
  • With newspaper advertising, you can easily schedule a campaign around your key selling cycle.
  • Short lead times make it possible to change your messages quickly to respond to real-world events and opportunities.

Impact and effectiveness

  • Newspaper advertising has proven its effectiveness over time.
  • Readers look for and forward to ads in newspapers, whereas they often resent advertising in other media.
  • Readers rely on newspapers for shopping information more than other media.
  • Combining text and visuals, well-designed newspaper ads engage your customers on many levels – emotional and intellectual.
  • Newspaper ad design is versatile. You can use blockbuster spreads to command attention.
  • Newspaper ads have the ability to communicate lengthy, complex or detailed information and descriptions.
  • Regular weekly sections offer opportunities to target like-minded readers in an environment that supports your message. Occasional special publications reach even more like-minded readers.
  • Newspaper advertising is more trusted than many other forms of advertising.
