A newspaper insert is an economical way to get your pre-printed piece into the hands of News readers. Insertion rates are based on distribution:

Greene County only (1,550): $195.00 ;
Greene, Clark & Montgomery Counties (1,650): $205.00 ;
Total circulation (1,750): $215.00

We ask that inserts are paid for the day they are dropped off and you bring in at least 100 pieces over the insertion amount; we will save the unused inserts for you. Also, if you wish, you can come to our office the Thursday of the week following your insertion, and retrieve your insert from unsold, returned newspapers. Please note: Unless otherwise notified, the News cannot be held responsible for inserts left beyond the week they are scheduled for insertion.
