Newcastle Herald

Newcastle Herald contributes to the health of the Hunter on a variety of levels. It plays an integral part in the Hunter community.

The Newcastle Herald’s aim is to produce a ‘one-stop’ newspaper. We cover major national and international events as well as any metropolitan paper, while our philosophy is to view those events through the eyes of firstly, Hunter Valley people, and secondly, regional and rural Australians. Newcastle Herald’s reporting and commentary leads public debate in the region and it’s coverage of local issues, from business to politics through to sport and entertainment is second to none.

Newcastle Herald is published six days a week and acknowledges that news organisations must take chances in adapting to the needs of online and mobile consumers or lose readership. Consumers are spending more time on digital media, and more of their digital media on mobile devices which is why the Newcastle Herald invests heavily in these areas.

This investment has resulted in the Newcastle Herald winning the PANPA awards for Best News Website and Best Mobile App in 2013 and 2014 as well as the Newcastle Herald’s audience never being higher than it is today.

This publication uses a T84 Modular layout.
