Advocate Solutions Partner

Adams Publishing partners with Column in Chesapeake


We're excited to announce that Column recently partnered with APG Media of Chesapeake, an Adams Publishing Group company comprising 25 newspapers and other publications across 19 counties in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and the District of Columbia.

Through this partnership, Column will bring our public notice solutions, including our collaborative placement platform and searchable online databases, to newspapers throughout the Chesapeake region.

"APG Media of Chesapeake is simply thrilled to be partnering with Column to serve up our clients' public notices and legal advertising," APG Chesapeake President Jim Normandin said.

"Column's team is second to none, and their technology will allow all public notices to be accessed online, in real time, within a searchable database that greatly improves public notice and legal advertising exposure and transparency 24/7 from any place at any time. Our readers benefit, our government municipalities benefit and our clients benefit. Clearly, this is a WIN for all!"

For Column, this partnership expands the company's footprint in the region, which already includes The Washington Post, Ogden Newspapers and the Maryland-Delaware-DC Press Association. It creates an exciting opportunity to increase revenue for media partners from public notice as moratoriums lift.

"After launching the MDDC Press Association's regional database earlier this year, we're thrilled to expand our work in the region through this new partnership with APG Chesapeake — delivering value and efficiency to the public notice process for Adams Publishing, as well as the legal and government customers they serve," said Column CEO Jake Seaton.
