The TimesLedger Newspapers is a chain of award-winning weekly newspapers that cover the borough of Queens, the nation’s most ethnically diverse county. The papers deliver a steady stream of breaking news, neighborhood stories, features, political analysis, crime and enterprise projects.
There are full-page photo layouts on borough events in each edition and new photo galleries every week on the website. The paper has extensive high school sports coverage as well as a section devoted to arts and entertainment in Queens.
The TimesLedger, which is available by subscription and general delivery, has established a national reputation for editorial and advertising excellence.
News coverage is tailored to specific areas of Queens in the chain’s seven different papers. The newsroom is filing fresh stories to the website on a daily basis, which often update the articles that appear in the weekly newspaper editions and set the stage for more in-depth pieces in the next print issue.
There are four papers in northeast Queens: the Bayside Times, the Little Neck Ledger, the Whitestone Times and the Flushing Times, which now incorporates the Fresh Meadows Times.
The Jamaica Times carries stories from all over southeast Queens, reaching readers in Queens Village, Cambria Heights, Hollis, Springfield Gardens, Laurelton, Rosedale and Rochdale Village.
The Forest Hills Ledger provides news from Rego Park, Ridgewood, Glendale, Maspeth and Howard Beach, while the Astoria Times also covers Long Island City, Jackson Heights, Sunnyside, Elmhurst and Corona.
The paper relies heavily on the community to alert the newsroom to important developments in the community and to provide tips about the stories that should be told.
The TimesLedger reporting staff has won more than 200 national and state journalism prizes over the last 10 years.
The chain traces its roots to July 2, 1935 when the Bayside Times opened. In 1960 it was merged with the Little Neck Ledger, which is now more than 90 years old. The two papers were purchased in 1989 when Queens Publishing Corp. was founded in Bayside. A series of new papers were added until the chain had a total of 16 weeklies. In 2008 News Corp. bought Queens Publishing, which became part of the Community Newspaper Group.
