About 1/4 of members have filed Rate and Data sheet as Nov. 12 deadline approaches

It’s time for the staff to start working on the 2020 Kentucky Press Association Directory and from the looks of things only about one-fourth of the members will have current/updated information listed.

The deadline to submit the rate and data sheet to KPA is November 12. And as of today, only 43 of a potential 174 publications — including full members, Associate Member Newspapers, Student Publications and Online Publications — have bothered to fill out the form.

We understand not all newspapers have their advertising rates established for 2020 but what we need most right now is basic information about each publication. Stuff like:

• names of key personnel — publisher, general manager, editor, ad manager

• mailing address

• phone numbers — main office phone for the newspaper and fax number

• publication day(s)

• circulation as shown on line 15c, left-hand column of the statement of ownership, and line 16a, left-hand column for paid electronic copies

• newspaper website URL

• page size in number of columns and page depth

Every bit of that information is already known and it only takes a minute to type it in and then submit the form.

So find the time between now and Tuesday, November 12, to complete that much information and then submit it to KPA.

Simply go to www.kypress.com/ratesheet and select your membership status.
