Now in our 38th year, and on the verge of publishing our 2,000th edition, the Community Advocate has been locally owned and operated since it was founded in the mid-1970’s. We pride ourselves on bringing readers insightful coverage of the relevant news happening in our primary distribution area of Shrewsbury, Westborough, Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough and Hudson. The Community Advocate also serves as a valuable source of information for readers seeking school news, obituaries and information on upcoming events.
Our reporters are local people who are entrenched in our communities and have established relationships with the residents and a wide variety of groups. We focus on finding the 'hidden heroes' within in our communities and work to bring their stories to the public. At the Community Advocate, we are also dedicated to covering local government and municipal meetings in a fair, unbiased way in order that our readers may obtain information they need to make informed decisions.
On the advertising front, we provide many options, both in print and online that allow businesses in our area to successfully market themselves in a highly effective and affordable way. The Community Advocate boasts the number one circulation in the six town region we cover; thousands of its readers have subscribed to the Community Advocate since its very inception.
Although our primary distribution area includes Shrewsbury, Westborough, Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough and Hudson, the Community Advocate is circulated in over 20 communities in Central Massachusetts. Many of the paper’s readers use it as their singular source for local community news, school news, obituaries and event information.
