Downtown newsmagazine produces a number of special sections
and publications each year, promotion for which you will find on this page
as these special print and online products are introduced.
We like to think of ourselves as trendsetters. We take an innovative approach to special sections and publications that we produce. Our readers are members of a unique audience in Oakland County – higher education and income levels – so they have come to expect a resourceful approach from Downtown newsmagazine not found with other publications.
Although we consider ourselves innovators in many ways, Downtown newsmagazine in 2018 produced a special but traditional Voter Guide for both the primary (24 pages) and general elections (32 pages), a practice that we will follow in all major election years as a matter of company policy to provide critical information for our followers. For the 2018 elections, news staff members presented the positions on issues from over two dozen candidates seeking office – from county commission, state representative and senate to congress. Downtown newsmagazine was the only print product in Oakland County to produce a thorough Voter Guide – for a local voting population that shows up the polls in consistently in higher numbers.
In 2019, Downtown introduced Faces: Business – an annual publication produced in the late summer each year. This special publication offers readers a personality profile of owners of businesses serving residents of the Birmingham/ Bloomfield area. The Faces: Business profile publication is printed in full-color on a heavier enamel (glossy) stock and is inserted into Downtown and added complimentary copies are distributed throughout the local area. The business profile publication can also be found in flipbook format on our website until the next issue is created.
For 2020, Faces: Business will be published in October and inserted in Downtown newsmagazine. Rate and deadline information is posted here.
