We know our readers’ time is valuable, so to show our appreciation for your participation in the Pulse of Black Press Media survey, we’re offering a $5,000 cash prize.

“Advertisers trust their community newspaper to reach local audiences and to provide a reliable and credible news environment. We do that, and now we want to enhance our ability to deliver advertisers’ messages with detailed and current market data.
