Leaders of the Times Union realized very early that in order for us all to grow we had to work together. As such, we are proud to be a Funding Partner of the Center for Economic Growth, and to be an integral part of what is now known as New York’s Tech Valley. As the region’s leading media organization, the Times Union is deeply embedded in this community. Our commitment to reporting the news fairly and independently, sponsoring local events and supporting local businesses helps to strengthen our area and make it a better place for all to work and live.

Now, more than ever, the Times Union is committed to remaining relevant to our readers and the businesses that support us.

Recently, we have taken a look at how our subscribers want to receive their news and have launched an innovative subscriber platform that keeps readers coming back; both online and in our print format.

For our advertisers, we now offer the Hearst Digital Agency. With this new offering, we can help businesses thrive and grow and add state-of-the-art digital media solutions in addition to the broad reach of the Times Union and tu.com

For the past year, the Hearst Media Center has been the center of communication with our readers. This 11,000 square foot Town Hall allows us to present topic of interest to our community and hear what they have to say.

The Times Union is part of Hearst, one of the world’s leading media, information and service companies. In the Capital Region, our suite of products extends beyond the daily newspaper, to include magazines, the region’s leading web site including a mobile site and a tablet platform.

All this makes the Times Union a valuable resource for the growing and diverse needs of the Capital Region’s business community.
