The Whitehall Ledger, established in 1984, is a weekly newspaper owned by Greg Corr.
The circulation is 1,150, and a typical Ledger is 24 tab-sized pages, although with special editions and special sections the paper can be as large as 40 pages. The newspaper offers extensive coverage of local activities, organizations and local government, and the paper has the following sections on a weekly basis: opinion/editorial, community/historical section, sports, agriculture, classified advertising and a real estate page. We are a five column (12 picas per column, 16 inches deep) tab. Our general circulation area is Whitehall, Pipestone, Cardwell, Silver Star, Waterloo, and Boulder. We publish the paper every Wednesday, and our deadline for news and advertising is 5 p.m. each Monday. Our business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and we are open during the noon hour.
ADVERTISING: Our standard advertising rate is $5 per column inch. Our classified ad rate is $5 for the first 15 words, with each word 10 cents after that. Our rate for pre-print advertising is $66 (for 1,000). We insert approximately 1,000 (we do not insert to subscribers out of the county or out of state). The Ledger does commercial printing and can create, design and print letterhead, brochures, flyers, posters, business cards and other products. We have a high quality digital camera and can take color photos for advertising or other purposes.

Ledger to start working on Whitehall Area Telephone Book
The Whitehall Area Telephone Book, one of the most popular products that the Whitehall Ledger prints during the year, is scheduled to be completed in December and distributed soon thereafter.
The front and back covers of the book have already been reserved, and a Ledger advertising representative will soon be approaching businesses around the community to see if they want to place an ad in the 2015 book.
The center spread of the book contains a street map of Whitehall with several points of interest. The book also contains frequently called phone numbers listed inside the front cover and Whitehall service clubs inside the back cover.
If anyone else has suggestions on how we can further improve the 2015 book, please let us know.
One of the biggest challenges in putting the book together is getting up-to-date phone numbers from residents of the greater Whitehall area. The Ledger needs the help of community residents to help us obtain a complete, accurate list of phone numbers. If you know of someone who was listed in the 2014 book and no longer lives in the Whitehall area, please let us know so we can take the phone number out. If you were listed in the book in 2014 and your number was incorrect, we need the correct number. If you want to be added to the book or deleted from the book, we need to know that as well. Just call the Ledger office at 287-5301 during our normal hours (8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday).
There is no cost to have a phone listing in the book. Also, the book is distributed free of charge throughout the community during the 2015 calendar year. Money generated from advertising pays for printing and distribution costs.
The Ledger will first approach all advertisers who placed an ad in the 2014 book. Then we will approach other businesses to see if they would like to advertise.
Feel free to call the Ledger office if you’d like to advertise in the 2015 book.
