The Bay Ridge Courier is back!


Schneps Media has relaunched the famed Bay Ridge Courier!

The print paper will keep residents of southern Brooklyn up to date with the latest and greatest news across a wide range of topics — including politics, development, business, schools, health, religion, art, and more! 

“We are thrilled to once again be serving Bay Ridge with local news and coverage,” said CEO Joshua Schneps. “These communities are some of the most active civically in New York City and deserve their own newspaper and local coverage online and through our social channels.” 

Schneps Media, a family-owned news conglomerate run by Josh and Victoria Schneps, had previously published the Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator from 2011 to 2018 — giving them unique experience in bringing the most important news and events to Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. 

Now, the Bay Ridge Courier will live as the sixth weekly Brooklyn-centric outlet under the banner of the company’s award-winning team at Brooklyn Paper — which includes Bay News, the Mill–Marine Courier, the Park Slope Courier, Brooklyn Graphic, and Brooklyn Paper!

The company also publishes a number of other outlets in-and-around New York City, including amNewYork Metro, Brownstoner, New York Family, Gay City News, Caribbean Life, The Queens Courier, and more.

Editor Meaghan McGoldrick comes to the job with a tremendous amount of expertise in the area as a lifelong resident of the area, who has worked covering Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights since 2012. 

“I am honored to be a part of the relaunch of the Bay Ridge Courier,” said McGoldrick. “I hope to build upon the incredible work done by the Brooklyn Paper team while also holding a microscope to the incredibly diverse and exciting neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights.”

Readers can find new copies of the Bay Ridge Courier each Friday at high traffic locations like street corners and supermarkets, but we also encourage you to subscribe to the newspaper by emailing rdonofrio@schnepsmedia.com with your name, address, and phone number.

We’re happy to be back!
