Community and Ethnic Media
New York is one of the most diverse cities in America. Community and ethnic websites, newspapers, radio, television and other media organizations are an important part of the way New Yorkers connect to the world. Community and ethnic media is also an important way for City government to speak to New Yorkers – including those who are learning English – about services, work opportunities, and new rules and regulations.
Executive Order 47 of 2019: Strengthening our Commitment to Community and Ethnic Media
In 2019, Mayor Bill de Blasio issued Executive Order 47, requiring City agencies, along with the NYC Department of Education, NYC Health + Hospitals, and NYCHA, to spend at least half of their annual print and digital advertising budgets on community and ethnic media outlets. The Executive Order does not include spending on broadcast media.
The Director of Community and Ethnic Media at the Mayor's Office and the Mayor's Office of Operations have developed and will continue to maintain a list of qualifying print and digital community and ethnic media outlets according to Executive Order 47. To access this list, visit here.
For any questions regarding community and ethnic media generally, to be added to the directory, or about Executive Order 47 specifically, please reach out to Jose Bayona, Director of Community and Ethnic Media at the Mayor's Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
