THE TODAY MAGAZINE EDGE
PRINT + DIGITAL
8.5 inches x 11 inches
Today Magazine is a print-and-digital monthly publication focusing on the tri-town heart of Connecticut's Farmington Valley — these three quintessential New England towns: Avon, Canton and Simsbury. Three towns, one aim — exceptional community journalism.
In our monthly digital edition, anyone anywhere with Internet access can read your news. We also publish content in Today Magazine Online, our Web-based news platform.
Our hyper-local focus means that you'll find news in Today Magazine that you likely won't find in other regional and state media outlets.
Further, in a media world that tends to emphasize the downside of the news cycle, we look to report the underreported upside of these three towns — and there's so much good stuff going on that we believe we'll never lack for news.
TOP-NOTCH PRODUCT = ADVANTAGE: ADVERTISERS
We’re confident that both newsmakers and advertisers will be happy to be identified with Today Magazine. Our editor-in-chief, an award-winning journalist, is aiming for community journalism at its best.
Given our media know-how and skill, we're hopeful that journalistic excellence will flow through Today Magazine like a river flowing through Avon, Canton and Simsbury ... to the benefit of our readers and advertising sponsors.
LONG SHELF LIFE
A full-color, glossy monthly magazine is ideal for a durable shelf life.
With winsome and robust features, Today Magazine gives readers many reasons to return throughout the month — the calendar of events, for example — meaning more opportunities for people to peruse our news and see our ads.
Compared with newspapers and newsprint magazines that tend to be quickly recycled, our glossy monthly magazine is more likely to be displayed on coffee tables, in reception areas, and wherever readers want to learn about local news ... and local businesses.
Today Magazine editor-in-chief Bruce Deckert has received a 2019 SPJ writing award for his cover story on Collinsville artist Jim DeCesare — a Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) third-place award in the Arts & Entertainment Hyperlocal category. This is his third SPJ honor — the first two were with other publications, a first-place op-ed award and a second-place page design award.
When your news and events appear in Today Magazine, everyone in Avon, Canton and Simsbury can read about it — because the magazine is mailed to every address (including businesses) in these three key towns. Other local publications reach only parts of these towns. When you're an advertising sponsor with us, your message reaches 100% of these three pivotal Greater Hartford communities.
