The Center for Community and Ethnic Media, which is housed at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, is releasing a report today on the advertising practices of New York City’s government.

The report documents how little of the city’s ad budget goes to community and ethnic publications despite their large and devoted readership. The combined circulation of the 95 ethnic newspapers and 80 weekly community papers is about 4.5 million, or 55 percent of the population, yet they receive only about 18 percent of the city’s advertising dollars.
