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.


Yeah, newspapers may seem "low tech,"  but they deliver big results to advertisers. But, if you're looking for something a bit more flashy - like digital, mobile or social media ads - we can help you with that too.

Call NC Press Services for all your advertising needs today.
