Cranford Monthly joins Renna Media’s family of newspapers

Beginning in January 2014 Cranford Monthly will join Renna Media’s family of newspapers. Cranford Monthly will deliver important information from the departments in town hall, along with news from the schools and library. Community service organizations are encouraged to promote their events and celebrate their accomplishments free of charge. The newspaper’s goal is to be a positive influence on the economic development and overall well-being of Cranford. There will be no investigative reporting or political content; Cranford Monthly exists to share all of the good things that are happening in town.

Renna Media is a Cranford based business owned and operated by husband and wife team Joe and Tina Renna. Cranford Monthly joins Renna Media’s family of twelve community newspapers published in and around Union and Somerset counties. The publications are “hyper-local” in nature in that they contain information focused on each individual town and are direct mailed within those towns.

The concept of being hyper-local is to give local businesses a venue to promote events and services. Reaching
local customers gives you the highest return for your advertising dollars. The newspapers are designed (black ink on newsprint) to keep the cost of an advertisement to as low as $60. A discount is also applied for those businesses involved in their local Chamber of Commerce. Regional businesses can take advantage of one low rate for advertising in multi publications.

Joe and Tina Renna, owners of Renna Media, LLC, have been publishing community newspapers since 1998 with the launch of Around About Peterstown, a regional newspaper about the Italian-American neighborhood in Elizabeth, NJ.

Renna Media sought to fill what they saw as a void in other communities and created newspapers that would give a venue to town administrations and non-profit organizations to promote upcoming events as well as to showcase the accomplishments of local residents and businesses.
