THE PONTIAC NEWS, INC.

 

A Positive News Source With A Local Flavor!

 

The Pontiac News is dedicated to providing balanced news about the City of Pontiac and surrounding communities!
 

The Pontiac News was founded and established in February 2007 and will be published bi-weekly beginning in July 2007.  As a major community and the capitol of Oakland County we believe that The City of Pontiac should have a newspaper that is dedicated to providing information and news about this great and historical city.

 

The Pontiac News is a community minded newspaper, that will not only serve readers but also businesses and local organizations and will strive to be the paper of record for local municipal units including The City of Pontiac, and the Pontiac School District.

 

This bi-weekly newspaper, The Pontiac News, has been established to cover areas in our retail zone including Pontiac, Auburn Hills, Waterford, Bloomfield and other nearby communities (and other school districts).

 

The Pontiac News will be distributed to over 25,000 homes in The City of Pontiac and nearby communities and over 1,000 area businesses, organizations and agencies. We will create a computer database for all addresses in the zip codes in the basic Pontiac News circulation area. A computer program will be generated with labels for all households and businesses in those zip codes. The program will then generate labels for all residents and businesses in order to reach a total of more than 30,000 homes and businesses in our retail area by mail or by carrier.

 

In addition to better serving the business community with expanded circulation to cover the retail zone, The Pontiac News will have a great product for readers. We will often feature full 4 color pictures on the front page and occasionally elsewhere in the paper. We will also have the Associated Press wire for news features, local writers to augment our local news, and feature coverage.  TPN web site will be launched to expand and supplement our news coverage and advertising reach.

 

We will continue to find better ways to serve our customers!
