The Vineyard Gazette will donate $9,000 to the Martha’s Vineyard Shellfish Group, the result of a successful subscription promotion drive that called attention to the plight of the Island’s coastal ponds.
Happy Birthday to the Gazette: the first issue of the newspaper came out 169 years ago today, May 14, 1846. A birthday is an opportunity to look to the past, and here's a look at the Vineyard Gazette of 100 years ago, when the paper cost 50 cents and the summer population was 20,000 people.
The Vineyard Gazette won 35 awards for excellence in journalism in an annual competition for newspapers in New England, including first place awards for the newspaper’s website and several awards for its special coverage of coastal erosion and the visit last summer by the whaleship Charles W. Morgan.
A new publication from the Vineyard Gazette Media Group makes its debut this week. The Vine, a full-color tabloid, brings original stories and a fresh, contemporary look to the special topical sections the company has produced for many years.
