What is MACnet?

MACnet_state_boundaryMACnet has been in existence since 1988 offering a cost effective, convenient way for advertisers to reach their customers. Since its inception, several advertisers have consistently advertised on a weekly or bi-weekly basis with the network.

The MACnet Networks are comprised of member publications of the Mid-Atlantic Community Papers Association who agree to run your advertisement at a discounted rate. By doing this, MACnet offers you an attractive coverage area at a rate that can’t be matched.

The map below shows the eight-state coverage area of MACnet. Because of the voluntary nature of the networks, not all publishers participate in the network. Please contact the office for a complete listing of the publishers who participate in the network.
