About Local First newspapers

Local First Newspapers is comprised of established weeklies, publishing since 1950 and part of the Times Union family of print products. We deliver weekly local news and advertising messages to the residents of Saratoga, Northern Albany and Rensselaer Counties. In addition, Local First Newspapers act as the sounding board for civic and non-profit community events.

Our publications speak for themselves with results you will see. Because Local First Newspapers offers our advertisers not just a large market but also the flexibility of selective circulation, we help you to make the most of your advertising dollar. Options from one or two editions to multiple combinations of editions will allow you to target specific demographics.

Capital Region Weekly Newspapers invites you to compare the cost per thousand and results obtained from our publications against any other media in the Capital Region. You’ll see the difference!
