At last – a newspaper that’s all about entertainment on the Coast!!
We currently have an “Out&About” section in each of our newspapers. However, because of our editorial policy, each newspaper only includes editorial about activities that take place in the areas covered by that newspaper.
This keeps them local and of great interest to people living and working in those areas.
Readers remain engaged from cover to cover because everything that is in the paper editorially will be of interest to them.
However, as most events want to attract people from all over the Coast and not just locally, this new newspaper will make that possible as well.
There has never been a restriction on advertising events outside a specific area.
Now editorially, we have a publication that can help promote an event taking place at the Southern end of the Coast to readers at the Northern end of the Coast.
This includes editorial on markets, music events, dance, art exhibitions, restaurants, theatre, movies, in fact any event that requires a reader to leave their home.
It’s not meant to include hard news, political editorial, Council news or things of that nature unless they relate directly to an Out&About activity.
Seeing that sport is also an “Out&About” activity, this new newspaper is combined with Central Coast Grandstand to form two newspapers in one, encouraging sports readers to also attend non-sport activities and vice versa.
Central Coast Grandstand is already being delivered across the Coast every fortnight and that distribution will now be widened to include any entertainment venues that are not already receiving it.
This new combined format will benefit both sides and will therefore make the publication much more effective.
Advertising rates, multiple booking discounts and multiple publication discounts remain the same providing even better value for advertisers.
Following on from the successes of publishing the ever popular Peninsula News since 1999, Bowls News Central Coast since 2005 and recently, Gosford Central News, Ducks Crossing Publications has extended that same style and formula to publish a fortnightly sports newspaper for the entire Central Coast.
This publication, Central Coast Grandstand, only carries news relating to sport, at all levels, across the Central Coast and in this way, is able to provide a wealth of information for readers interested in sport. This includes federal, state and local government sports news, academy and association news, club news, events, registration days, scoreboard, tides, school sport, letters and anything relevant to sport on the Coast. It is a true newspaper and advertising content is restricted to a maximum of 40% of content.
The first edition was published on February 24, 2011. It is published monthly and distributed to all clubs, taverns, shopping centres, libraries, service stations, sporting venues, newsagents, sport related retail outlets and anywhere else, from Gwandalan to Mooney Mooney, where large numbers of people are likely to be.
13,000 copies are printed and it is published and distributed on a Thursday. In this way it can carry the previous weekend’s sports news as well as news about the coming weekend’s activities.
Central Coast Grandstand is also a public forum for sport on the Coast. All residents, participants, relevant community groups, government and non-government organisations, businesses, employees and visitors to the area are encouraged to send in contributions, letters, notices on forthcoming activities or anything else that they feel readers will want to know about.
Central Coast Grandstand is of great benefit to all sport on the Coast as well as to the health and welfare of all involved residents on the Coast. Major and minor sports all have a voice and junior, school and senior sport also has an opportunity for exposure and promotion to like-minded people.
Businesses and other organisation in the area can also be some of the greatest beneficiaries of Central Coast Grandstand because they are now able to promote their products and services directly to their target groups and to young audiences that do not normally read other more general publications.
If you are involved in a sport, or a business or organisation that has an involvement with sport, feel free to send us news or contact us for more information.
