In February 2010, the first issue of Campus News hit a dozen two-year colleges in the New York Metro area. Since, the paper has expanded Upstate as well as to Lower New England and New Jersey. It now hits 37 campuses and prints over 110,000 issues a year.

Campus News is a 32-page, full-color, tabloid-size newspaper. The campuses embrace it. Student readers love it. Its student writers go on to prestigious four-year journalism programs and intern at top national publications. Advertisers feel it’s the best way to directly reach college students in the country’s No. 1 market.

Publisher Darren Johnson — a longtime college instructor and administrator and former New York Press Association “Writer of the Year” — keeps the integrity of the product high while streamlining production, making it a safe and affordable place for advertisers to be and a respected venue for college faculty/staff/student writers to be published.
