Proud to be part of the Tweed
Community at heart of business
WHEN it comes to a regional newspaper, there’s a sense of ownership from the local community which metropolitan newspapers would be envious of.
Sure the papers in the ‘big smoke’ might have far more resources to call upon but I don’t think they they the same sense of connection which their country cousins have with the people they serve.
This is definitely the case for the Tweed Daily News.
For the past 130 years, the paper has faithfully served the Tweed community through thick and thin, the good times and the not-so-good and done so with a level of integrity and commitment which has been cherished by hundreds of people who have worked for the paper over the decades.
Just as the Tweed has changed, so too has the nature of bringing news to the community.
Technology has played a major role in the production of the Tweed Daily News and, like so many industries, that has taken its toll on the workforce, but one thing has stayed fairly constant – the paper has consistently remained focused on the community it knows best.
Over 130 years of covering the Tweed, the Daily has seen a small army of people pass through its doors and no matter what role people have played in ensuring the paper came out, there is a bond among them – proud to have been part of a regional paper whose reputation far exceeds its circulation.
The Tweed Daily has been a breeding ground for some talented journalists and photographers, it has seen apprentices learn the printing trade, administration staff become part of the fabric of the Tweed community and advertising reps who have helped businesses establish themselves.
The pride shown by staff over the past 130 years in being part of the Tweed
Daily News is reflected in the pride shown in covering the Tweed Shire and its people. Hopefully that will continue long into the future.
