The Top 30 US Media Markets

by: Penny

A lot of people refer to the “Top 30 US Media Markets” but often I get asked: “So what are they?” Some of them are pretty easy like New York and Los Angeles, the others might surprise you. Keep in mind that this list changes – Phoenix, Arizona, for example, was at one time a top 10 market, now it’s dropped to #12. Why is this important? Because publishing houses typically focus on the top 10-30 markets when they are pushing an author to the media. If you’re in one of those markets and having a hard time finding someone to cover your story, that might be why. Consider alternative towns/cities nearby that don’t fall within this list. Good luck!
