HORIZONS vision for the future 2020 MEDIA KIT


What is Horizons?

PREMIUM LOCATIONS

For 39 years, Leader Publications has produced Horizons, southwest Michigan’s “community yearbook,” which celebrates people, places, organizations and trends in Niles, Dowagiac, Cassopolis, Edwardsburg and Buchanan.

A vision for the future

Southwest Michigan has experienced tremendous growth in recent years, with new businesses planting their roots regularly, and longtime businesses celebrating impressive milestones every day. The momentum is building, and we know Michiana is on the cusp of even greater things, thanks to talented individuals dedicated to developing a plan for the future. Horizons 2020 celebrates this plan — the 2020 vision for the future, so to speak — and all of the people, entities and organizations propelling our communities forward.

A marketing solution for everyone
