Observer Advertising Deadline

Tomorrow is the deadline to place your ad in The Observer for the edition that will be on shelves October 3-9.

Advertising with The Observer, online and in print, is the best way to reach the Central Washington University and Ellensburg community.


The Observer is delivered to 26 on-campus locations and 24 off-campus locations around Ellensburg every Thursday. Our target audience reaches more than 13,000 viewers. According to Alloy Media and Marketing, 83% of college students have tried a product, service, or store after seeing it advertised. The Observer is always looking for opportunities to connect your organizations’ message, products and services to our market of college students, faculty and staff, and, we are the best print media outlet in Central Washington for doing so!


Ad space is to be reserved no later than the Friday prior to the edition you’d like to run in. Approved Art is required by end of business Monday the week of the publication.

***Special summer edition has an earlier deadline–it follows the same schedule for production as the final spring issue.
