About Us

It all began in 1846, in the heyday of the whaling era, when Edgar Marchant founded the Vineyard Gazette, pledging to create a newspaper that was “Neutral in Politics . . . devoted to General News, Literature, Morality, Agriculture and Amusement.”

178 years later, the Vineyard Gazette remains the Island’s trusted source of Island news, still printed every week at the back of our historic home in the village of Edgartown. Today, the Vineyard Gazette Media Group is a multi-media publishing company with an award-winning portfolio that includes magazines, websites, newsletters and events.

Independent, community-minded and committed to the highest standards of journalism and design, the Vineyard Gazette Media Group is singularly dedicated to the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

Unparalleled reach.
Exceptional demographics.
