Closing a chapter on print but the stories continue
NEWS is changing: After close to 150 years of the Border Post, the physical publication will cease production with today’s edition – Thursday, June 25.
As job cuts swept across the country, many Australian newspapers were forced to make significant changes to their output, leaving many rural and regional areas devoid of local coverage.
On the Southern Downs, however, your stories will continue to be shared.
Five dedicated journalists remain on staff to ensure the community remains connected, entertained and informed seven days a week.
We will continue to cover the stories that matter to you.
From high-adrenaline footy games to the struggles of severe fire seasons, the wins of businesses and the loss of beloved residents, daily digital news offers a degree of local, timely and tailored coverage that is impossible to replicate in weekly papers, or news outlets further afield.
For as long as the masthead continues online, there will be trained reporters who hit the ground running at 7am, making calls, scheduling interviews, taking photographs and pumping out, on average, five stories each and every single day.
More than anything, there
will be someone who genuinely cares about the people of the Southern Downs and their stories. We have cried, laughed and cheered with this com
munity, and we hope to do so for generations to come.
The future of the news has always been reliant on its customer base and we hope our valued readers will continue to support us, so we can continue to serve our community long into the future.
Purchasing a digital subscription will help secure the future of the Border Post and ensure our local journalists can continue to cover the issues that matter.
It will help ensure you continue to have a voice.
