As a sponsor of TucsonSentinel.com, you will reach a local community of engaged readers with your message.
The more successful we are, the more affordable your banner gets — unlike many sites, we don't charge per reader impression, so your banner will rotate in its slot all month long. Individual banners are displayed an average of 5,500 times each day — many, many more on a busy news day.
2 sizes: Half-Page, Leaderboard & Big Box
Half-Page banners (300x600) appear on the front page, section pages and within every story page. Their prominent size — nearly three times the real estate of a Big Box banner — means they dominate any page on which they appear.
Leaderboards (728x90) appear at the top of every page. Their commanding presence ensures that readers respond to Leaderboard messaging.
Big Boxes (300x250) appear on the front page, section pages and within every story page. They are surrounded by content and convey your message with the most flexible designs. Video can run in a Big Box slot for just $100 more monthly.
Don't have an online campaign yet? Design services are available at very affordable rates.
