Press Release & Distribution

With Virginia Press Services (VPS), you have access to the state’s largest press release distribution service – reaching virtually all of Virginia’s newspapers (including those with online publications).

What is the service?

Press releases will usually be sent out within two to three hours of receipt. We guarantee a minimum turnaround of half a day. If we receive your press release prior to noon, it will be distributed by 5 p.m. the same day; releases received after noon but prior to 5 p.m. will be distributed by noon the next business day.

The fee is $100 to send to all Virginia Press Association member newspapers. You can also choose to send to daily members only for $60, or non-daily members for $60. To include a photo, there is an additional charge of $15 per photo.
