In 1962, Greater Media Newspapers was born in Central New Jersey when parent company Greater Media, Inc. purchased two weekly newspapers in southern Middlesex County.

Since the beginning, Greater Media Newspapers has been dedicated to excellence in publishing and to serving the local communities where it does business. The papers are embraced by the communities where they are circulated, providing the “local connection” that is often overlooked by the large dailies, with in-depth coverage of local news, high school sports and community events and issues. Greater Media Newspapers also strives to provide outstanding service and results for its advertisers by being responsive, creative and collaborative. The company has grown into a family of 10 weekly newspapers reaching 245,000 households in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties, and has earned more than 200 awards for excellence in publishing and advertising in the past 10 years. The newspapers’ enhanced web presence attracts more than 120,000 unique address hits (or viewers) and more than a half-million page views each month.
