Oakland County Times Seeking Naming Sponsor for Candidate Interviews & Coverage

Oakland County Times Seeking Naming Sponsor for Candidate Interviews & Coverage

The Oakland County Times has built a tradition of doing short, unbiased video interviews with candidates for local office.

These videos have been helpful to voters and to candidates.  And in an era where politics can be distasteful, the candidate interviews give a refreshing glimpse into the local political process, capturing why these people want to serve as council members, county commissioners, state reps and more.

In 2017 we did 85 interviews which included candidates in 21 cities through Oakland County.

In 2018 our coverage will be even better, and will include higher-level races like county commission, state rep and likely some statewide and Congressional candidates as well.

This is a great opportunity for a business to step up to support democracy and local journalism, while also getting their name out there to the most active officials and most engaged citizens in Oakland County.

Your $2,500 sponsorship will include advertising on all political stories for the year and inclusion of your message in each candidate interview video. We can also discuss other tie-ins or perks that may make sense based on your business needs. 

The Oakland County Times finished 2017 with average readership of 10,000 per day.  Monthly there are 125,000 readers and over 3.6 million hits!  We anticipate this number growing through the year.

The interviews themselves reach several hundred to several thousand readers depending on the city.  Plus there are announcements of ballot proposals, other political stories, social media, and election results coverage!
