Ask the editor: How is ‘Community Impact Newspaper’ funded?

Community Impact Newspaper, which has 26 papers across Texas and Arizona, relies solely on local advertising for funding.

As a privately owned company, our founders, John and Jennifer Garrett, realized the value in local journalism supported by local advertising.

Advertising in Community Impact Newspaper not only allows us to produce quality content, but it also allows us to maintain a solid team of five—a general manager, an account executive, a designer, a senior reporter and an editor—and provide hyperlocal news for free in Frisco. That said, each article we write is independent of our advertisers.

Our monthly print edition comprises 50 percent editorial content and 50 percent advertising. This ratio helps us to balance hyperlocal reporting and news with the support of high-quality advertisements.
