Blank Slate Media.is an award-winning chain of 6 paid- and requester-circulation community newspapers published weekly in Nassau County and a website that provides up-to-the-minute news.
Blank Slate has also developed theislandnow.com, an award-winning website with six URLs that mirror the five newspapers and a home page that reflects the entire North Shore.
In the process, Blank Slate Media has established itself as the No. 1 source of news and information for the communities of the North Shore of Long Island - one of the most affluent areas in the country. Included are Great Neck, Manhasset, Roslyn, Old Westbury, North Hills Albertson, East Williston, Mineola, Williston Park, Floral Park, New Hyde Park and Port Washington.
The company has succeeded by providing a unique product to both readers and advertisers both online and in print.
For readers, the newspapers provide comprehensive coverage of neighborhood and community news too narrow for daily newspapers, radio or television to cover but No. 1 among what readers say they want to read.
The information, professionally written and edited, is about things that directly affect people's lives - news about their neighborhood, the schools their children attend, the stores and services they are likely to use.
Blank Slate does this by offering a separate newspaper for each community with daily-newspaper quality reporting, editing and design. This is reflected in the numerous state awards for journalistic excellence that the papers have won in the past three years, and a reputation as the best weekly newspapers on the North Shore of Long Island.
The company’s print coverage is complemented by theislandnow.com, a website that allows Blank Slate Media to provide up-to-the-minute coverage and compete with all other news platforms on the North Shore – weekly and daily newspapers as well as cable television, radio and online news sources.
