Advocate Media celebrates 125 years of community journalism

Last month Advocate Media kicked off their celebration of five generations in the community with a night of music and fun at a sponsored Aaron Pritchett concert in Pictou, NS.

Sean Fraser, the local MP, gave an inspirational speech sharing how fortunate the community is to have such a dedicated, committed community newspaper.  Sean also reinforced how important the relationship between community journalism and politics is to democracy.

Advocate Media has a full calendar of events planned to continue the celebration, including special news features (celebrating past and future), special offers for readers and advertisers, as well as contests, prize draws and random giveaways.

In March they will be recognizing International Women’s Day with a 5 part series on influential women in Pictou county launched with a spadea on this week’s issue.  And avertisers can take advantage of a “125 UPGRADE” offer to increase their ad to the next size for just $125.
