The Communicator is a student-run bi-weekly newspaper serving the students, faculty and staff of Spokane Falls Community College in Spokane, Wash. The newspaper has a history of excellence dating back to its founding in 1968.
In 2006, The Communicator was named one of the top six community college newspapers at the national Associated Collegiate Press conference in Los Angeles. Recently, the Communicator has reinvented itself as a truly contemporary student newspaper.
As of fall 2005, The Communicator is produced electronically and sent to the printer as PDF files. This makes the reproduction quality sharper and gives the paper a more professional appearance.
The paper also went through a complete redesign including new fonts, photo placement techniques, and page layout modernization. The result is a community college newspaper with an appearance on par with that of professional and university-level student publications.
Our paper is made available free of charge to a student body of more than 5,500 SFCC students, the average age of which is 25.
We print 1,600 newspapers per issue.
When advertising with The Communicator, you are tapping directly into the 18-34 demographic that is so hard to reach through traditional media outlets.
Staff members hand out the papers to SFCC students at key traffic points around campus and keep racks stocked with them between delivery dates. In addition to traditional college students, SFCC's student body also includes older students and married students with children as well as students retraining after years in the job force. Advertising in The Communicator is not only a smart business decision; it's also a way to help support student journalism.
The Communicator currently accepts display print advertising. We are working on rates for advertising on The Communicator Online, and will post more info as it becomes available. In the meantime, please download our print advertising media kit.
