We combine print and digital media to offer you the best of both worlds

As an independent locally-owned business around since 1997, we work hard to offer the most cost-effective, targeted advertising opportunity in this region.

We have the best-read magazines in the area because of the relationship we have with our readers. We respect our readers by offering them local content relevant to our community. We are independent, produced locally and that has earned our place in our readers' living room.
