New York City is one of the most diverse cities in America, and the news publications that its residents read reflect that diversity. Community and ethnic media outlets provide an important way for the City to make sure that all New Yorkers, including those with limited English proficiency and immigrant communities, are aware of City government programs and services.
In 2019, Mayor de Blasio issued Executive Order 47, requiring City agencies, along with the NYC Department of Education, NYC Health + Hospitals, and NYCHA, to spend a significant portion of their advertising budgets in on-line and print media that reaches communities, such as ethnic and other minority communities, specific neighborhoods and boroughs, and residents who read in languages other than English.
The Mayor’s Office of Operations, Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, and Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment have developed, and will continue updating, a list of community and ethnic media outlets. Please reach out to Jose Bayona, Director of Community and Ethnic Media at the Mayor's Office, firstname.lastname@example.org, to find out how to be added to the list.
