Think about who you want your newspaper readers to be. Now, who would want to sell to those people? Those would be your advertisers.
For example, if you are making a student newspaper, your readers will be students. Try businesses that sell things to students, like sporting goods stores, teen boutiques, the high school hangout restaurant, etc. If it is a neighborhood newspaper, the local merchants would be the ones to approach.
