Pick a demographic:

  • they live in Lexington’s very best neighborhoods, from downtown to Beaumont and Hartland and Hamburg, along with Lexington’s most charming original historic suburbs such as Ashland Park, Bell Court, Chevy Chase, and Southland Drive. 
  • they’re college educated, and most hold advanced degrees
  • they are early adopters — technology, media, and more.
  • they attend concerts — along with operas and symphonies.
  • they go to the movies, and they also go to the Theatre.
  • they buy sporting goods, and fine art; wine, beer, and bourbon.
  • they eat out an average of 3x a week (ranging from burgers and pizza to fine dining).

Ace has always reached the bluegrass region’s brightest, sharpest, most active, educated, affluent readers. (Like you!) Ace readers are both influencers and early adopters.

The elusive/exclusive newsweekly niche

The Ace Readers are virtually immune to mainstream advertising.

  • they fast forward through commercials (if they watch TV at all)
  • If they want to watch, they binge-stream their favorite shows, commercial free
  • they responsibly recycle junk-mail into the Rosie straight from the mailbox
  • they prefer their smartphones and satellite to commercial radio
  • they’re more likely to turn to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook than a Daily for a news update

But they turn to Ace and Ace online for reliability and credibility — for curated news, thoughtful features and profiles, and the most comprehensive calendars in Lexington KY. 

Call Ace Advertising at 859.225.4889, x235 today to schedule your annual Ace Ad Plans in print and online advertising for the central Kentucky region, including online packages with e-dition ad plans, social shares, and sponsored links.

Whether it’s Boomers who’ve been reading Ace since that first day in 1989, natives, or visitors and transplants who’ve always trusted the vernacular of the independent media in whatever market they’ve lived in — they all pick up an Ace to find Lexington’s BEST options for how to spend their discretionary time and income.

No one will ever tune out or fast forward through your Ace commercials.

And we always use our media power for good (like funnel cakes), not Evil (Truthiness for Sale).
