Wisconsin GazetteWisconsin Gazette
Founded in 2009, at the low point of the Great Recession, Wisconsin Gazette has flourished despite the odds by providing high-quality journalism, honest business practices and award-winning design in a challenging media market. From a humble circulation of 9,000, we have tripled our readership in less than six years to a current biweekly press run of more than 30,000 and we’re rapidly growing.
Advertisers benefit from our multiplatform campaigns that include print, Web, social media and e- newsletters. Wisconsin Gazette — or WiG, as we call it — has garnered 24 Milwaukee Press Club awards in the past four years, making it Milwaukee’s most awarded alt weekly. We were especially honored when the AAN awarded us with a Best Cover Design award at its 2015 annual convention in Salt Lake City.
We’ve become a primary source for news and commentary targeting progressive readers, particularly those with a special interest in LGBT, environmental, political, women’s health, income inequality, animal welfare, racial and immigration issues, as well as supporters of the local art, music and theater scene. We also feature popular pet and dining sections. Our deep connection with our readers’ interest is reflected in the frequent feedback we receive on our website and Facebook page, which consistently has the highest level of engagement of any AAN member in Wisconsin.
In addition to serving metro Milwaukee, we distribute biweekly in Kenosha and metro Madison. We are audited by Circulation Verification Council. Upon request, we happily provide advertisers with copies of our latest press run.
