Blank Slate Media is a fast-growing media organization serving the North Shore of Nassau County through digital, print publications and live events.

The company’s 6 award-winning newspapers and website are the No. 1 source of news and entertainment in the communities they cover.

Combined with their advertising partners, Litmor Publications, the group’s 11 papers are the most cost-effective way to advertise on both the North Shore and central Nassau County.

The 11 newspapers have a combined circulation of 38,945 and a readership of more than 116,000; the group’s 2 websites have 240,000 page views, 71,278 unique visitors and 405,000 impressions per month.

With a separate paper for each community, the group provides 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, where they shop and where they go to be entertained.

A separate newspaper for each community also allows advertisers to target their market and avoid wasted circulation.  This makes us the most cost-effective way to advertise – whether you are a business seeking to reach one community or the entire North Shore and central Nassau County.
