Talk Of Semmes is dedicated to local journalism in the Semmes AL area. Our focus is relentlessly local, and so are our readers. We often get the question: “What’s your bias?”

We have two: (1) We love this city and (2) we feel local journalism is important to maintaining a vibrant healthy community.

During the past months (April. 2016 – May 2016) we had an average of about 225 visitors per day and about 990 page views per day.

More than 96 percent of our readers come from the Semmes area.

Because of the nature of our content, we know our readers care about Semmes and want to know what’s going on with planning and development, annexation, local government, education and what it means to live in the area.

Sponsorship opportunities include sponsorship of articles and series. If you have any questions or are interested in sponsoring Talk Of Semmes, contact Terry Platt @ 251-583-5955.

One month – $50

Six months – $150

Ads vs. Sponsorships
In addition to sponsorships, Talk Of Semmes offers display and link advertising. The primary difference is in persistence. Display ads may be intermittent and have a limited life span. Sponsored articles and series age and lose their prominence, unless republished, but they never go away.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
