North Carolina Press Association

NCPA promotes North Carolina newspapers, readership and advertising. We work to protect the public's right to know through the defense of open government and First Amendment freedoms, and we help maintain the public's access to local, state and federal governments. NC Press Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary, works with clients to provide one-call advertising solutions (online, mobile and print) and press release services in North Carolina and nationwide.

Advertising Pays

Print newspapers are the most engaging medium and have the highest advertising engagement, and newspaper websites easily outscore the Internet on both media and ad engagement. Details.
