At BQE Media & Publishing, we cover and deliver the most hyper-local news of various neighborhoods in Brooklyn & Queens with EIGHT legacy print weekly newspapers, a magazine as well as dozens of social and digital news products. Our digital news tool box is quite expansive and is designed to produce unique content that creates a loyal engagement in hyper-local news, events and activities by residents and businesses within the dozens of small communities throughout Brooklyn and Queens New York. Our very success as a century-old news organization is based on our ability to ‘own’ the customer relationship by engaging known audiences, building upon a relationship with our multiple legacy brands. Out brands include 100-year-old print news companies, decades old sports leagues, a century old industry association newspaper and vibrant digital news and social brands which interact with our audience 24/7. Our readers play in our sports leagues, they participate in our events and they believe in our recommendations. We now reach 150,000 people a week by print and 200,000 people a week through all our digital properties.
We produce a chain of EIGHT separate and distinct weekly community NEWSPAPERS each Thursday with a readership of 150,000. A handful of those newspapers have been published every week for nearly a century.
The Queens Ledger has been published every Thursday since 1873. The Greenpoint Star was once a daily newspaper in the mid-1800s and The Leader Observer of Woodhaven, Queens has been delivered every Wednesday since 1909. We publish the Glendale Register, founded in 1935, the Long Island City/Astoria JOURNAL and The Queens Examiner, which is distributed in Eastern Queens. We also publish The Forest Hills/Rego Park Times and The Brooklyn Downtown Star, covering areas from Brooklyn Heights all the way to Bushwick. In all, our ‘award-winning’ weekly newspapers have a weekly newspaper readership of 150,000 and readership has held steady through the digital age. That’s stability that can’t be matched.
We produce 8 related newspaper WEB SITES with linked mobile editions, a daily EMAILED news summary at 8am, dozens of hyper-local neighborhood BLOGS as well as SOCIAL NEWS FEEDS with breaking news, analysis and comments; to meet the needs of every type of news consumer and client advertiser. A handful of those platforms have won ‘first place’ awards in the New York Press Association over the last decade for innovation, design and news coverage in hyper-local digital news space. Our quarterly glossy magazine is called It’s Queens – the magazine. The magazine’s focus is on the ‘best of Queens’ as our editors profile the top choices for anything from pizza, to barbershops to restaurants to Movers & Shakers. We run events related to our magazine profiles and we have robust engagement with thousands of individuals who participate in our sports leagues, come to our events and work with us as we help our hyper-local civic organizations.
Our motto is ‘… we’re not just newspapers anymore.’ We engage a trusted readership who believes in our mission of ‘community strength.’
