What is NIE?

Through The News-Gazette in Education program, local educators can receive curriculum materials and classroom sets of The News-Gazette for FREE, thanks to the support of our Educational Partners. All we ask is that you receive a minimum of FIVE newspapers per delivery. We'll deliver the quantity of papers you request to your school. Just contact NIE Manager Bob Cicone, Jr at

The News Gazette is now an all morning delivery newspaper. School bundles will be delivered by 6:00am to all schools who order NIE newspapers.
