Despite the doom and gloom in Australian media, the outlook for regional papers remains strong

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Is the “local rag” doomed under the Nine-Fairfax merger and the re-shaping of the Australian media landscape?

    Does the creation of the new media-entertainment conglomerate threaten the very existence of the local newspaper?

    Media commentary has justifiably questioned the continuation of quality journalism and editorial independence of the metropolitan dailies in Sydney and Melbourne. Yet there has been a silence on the threat to small country and suburban mastheads.
