A mes­sage to our read­ers

Midland Reporter - - News -

COM­MU­NITY News, the pub­lisher of the Mid­land and Kala­munda Re­porter, re­cently un­der­took an ex­haus­tive re­view of all our news­pa­pers and dig­i­tal publishing chan­nels.

The re­view looked at how well we en­gage with our read­ers, the eco­nomic con­di­tions across Perth and in each com­mu­nity, and how we could en­sure we have a sus­tain­able busi­ness to bring news and in­for­ma­tion to Perth’s res­i­dents well into the fu­ture.

Dur­ing this re­view we recog­nised we have an in­creas­ingly en­gaged au­di­ence on our dig­i­tal plat­forms – our web­site com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au, Face­book, Twit­ter and In­sta­gram.

There is also con­tin­ued de­mand by read­ers for lo­cal news in printed form.

How­ever, eco­nomic con­di­tions and chang­ing me­dia buy­ing habits mean that in the Mid­land and Kala­munda ar­eas it is no longer vi­able to cre­ate, pro­duce and de­liver a lo­cal news­pa­per.

We have there­fore made the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to stop pro­duc­tion of the printed news­pa­per in your area, the Mid­land and Kala­munda Re­porter. The fi­nal edi­tion will be de­liv­ered to your home or lo­cal pick-up point on Septem­ber 4.

We will, how­ever, con­tinue to pro­vide ter­rific lo­cal con­tent on our dig­i­tal plat­forms and will be look­ing at ways to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Thank you for your sup­port and we look for­ward to bring­ing you more great con­tent on­line.
