Long Island’s fastest-growing community news resource is expanding with a seventh site, this time covering the Town of Smithtown.
Management at Greater Long Island Media Group first announced on Instagram this week that GreaterSmithtown will be unveiled Thursday, Oct. 15.
“We’re excited to show everyone in Smithtown our brand of news and be an integral part of the town’s growth and long-term health,” said the company’s publisher, Michael White, who grew up in Commack. “Our GreaterPortJeff site has absolutely exploded this year. It’s on track to be viewed 875,000 times in 2020. The time is now to expand our footprint on the North Shore.”
Greater Long Island Media Group already publishes sites that cover much of Suffolk’s South Shore, contiguously from Amityville to Eastport, including GreaterPatchogue, GreaterBayShore and GreaterBabylon.
“These sites are all run by top-notch, professional journalists all living on Long Island and all very much invested in our communities,” White said.
As a whole, the sites are on track to be viewed nearly 6 million times in 2020 alone. All reachable through greaterlongisland.com, the company has been recognized multiple times by the Press Club of Long Island as among a top digital news resource on Long Island.
GreaterSmithtown’s news side will be overseen by Greater Long Island’s editorial director, Nick Esposito of Centereach. The advertising side will be run by Nick Marchand of Coram, the company’s director of promotions.

“Smithtown comprises so many vibrant communities that are rich in history and blessed with a bright future,” Esposito said. “There are so many exciting things happening in the town, or about to happen, yet many of these great stories are not being told. We will be telling these stories.”
Greater Long Island content remains free, and will for the foreseeable future, and that is all made possible by our advertisers.
“Creating and designing an ad campaign has never been easier,” Marchand said. “The greatest part about digital advertising is we can update your ad at a moment’s notice, unlike in print. We can then leverage our advertising and promotions through social media.
“We cannot wait to spread the word about all the great community events, businesses, bars and restaurants that Smithtown has to offer.”
