Sun sets on print, to rise with digital
THE groundswell of support for the Tweed Daily News in recent weeks has been overwhelming and heartening. From people writing in with Letters to the Editor to those taking to social media to share their stories of the importance of the local newspaper, the support for what we do has been greatly appreciated.
The decision to close the print edition was an incredibly difficult one and we understand the disappointment. But it’s the end of the chapter, not the story What we need to make clear, however, is we are not going away as a news provider. There are still journalists employed to cover vital stories for the Tweed community.
Across our region, the majority of our customers are now using our digital platform with thousands paying to be in the know. Our job is to do all we can to make that service the best it can be. We have reporters committed to bringing you the stories that matter. And with a network the size of News, we will be able to ensure they can focus on the local stuff while the rest of the organisation delivers stories from around the state, nation and the world in news, sport, lifestyle and the like. If you are not already a subscriber, but still want local news, read about our special offer which includes a Sumsung tablet worth $249 on page 12 or visit tweeddailynews.com.au
