The LiCityBlog is operated by BQE Media & Publishing. Our staff writers and contributors support the blog with news and information which news consumers need to know about their neighborhood.
At BQE Media & Publishing, we cover and deliver the most hyper-local news of various neighborhoods in Brooklyn & Queens with legacy print platforms as well as social and digital news products.
Our aim is to post in three categories; report the news of the neighborhood, deliver opinions about happenings here, and report important events before they happen to urge residents to become involved in the community.
Each blog is hyper-local in nature and contributors to this blog might not necessarily be members of our staff. We find passionate community leaders who contribute to their neighborhood blog.
Our advertising clients trust us to deliver a complete marketing effort, which is directed towards local digital and print news & information consumers. We have engaged with our subscribers, followers, and friends who love that we deliver the news the way they want to consume it. The digital revolution has brought our newspaper to new heights of two-way communication with news consumers.
As for our newspapers and magazine, a number of our print products have been published weekly for more than a century without missing a week. The Queens Ledger has been published every Thursday since 1873. The Greenpoint Star was once a daily newspaper in the 1800s and The Leader Observer of Woodhaven has been delivered every Wednesday since 1909. We publish the Glendale Register, founded in 1935, the Long Island City/Astoria JOURNAL, The Queens Examiner, which is distributed in Eastern Queens, We also publish the Forest Hills/Rego Park Times and The Brooklyn Downtown Star, covering areas from Brooklyn Heights all the way to Bushwick. In all, our weekly newspapers have a weekly newspaper readership of 150,000 and readership has held steady for over a decade. That’s stability that can’t be matched.
