The physical radius of distribution for the Providence Phoenix is laid out in detail in the publication's annual advertising bundle

Uploaded Image

The large majority of the total Phoenix readership lies within Providence County (38,000 readers). In fact, readership in Providence County is almost five times that of readership in neighboring Washington county (8,000 readers). Outside of Providence, readership is more or less evenly distributed between Kent and Washington counties in Rhode Island, and Worcester & Norfolk and Bristol Counties in Massachusetts. The above map puts emphasis on colleges within each county. The fine print reminds potential advertisers that the total readership "includes 10,000 copy college distribution to: Bristol Community College, Brown University, Bryan College, Johnson & Wales, Rhode Island College, RISD, Roger Williams, Salve Regina, Umass/Dartmouth, URI, Wheaton College." It is clear that the Phoenix recognizes college students to be the target of many potential advertisers.
