This newspaper has been in operation since 1980 and under current ownership since 1999. Well established business that serves the entire Central Peace area. Publishes every Tuesday. A member of the Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association and Canadian Community Newspaper Association.
Main sources of revenue:
•A subscription/advertising deal with all five local municipalities that increases readership which attracts national and provincial advertising.
• Local advertising from area businesses and community organizations; as well as some regional advertising from Grande Prairie and area.
•Provincial and Federal advertising through the Alberta Weekly Newspaper Association.
• The Canada Periodical Fund
Newspaper does well financially with local advertising which can be expanded through business advertising from Grande Prairie businesses (car dealerships, furniture stores, etc) which is only 80 kilometers from Rycroft.
All five municipalities purchase subscriptions for residents in return for advertising.
Federal funding through the Canada Periodical fund to help offset printing and mailing costs.
MARKET & COMPETITION
