Waitaki Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

As you’ll be aware, last week Stuff an­nounced it will be clos­ing 28 com­mu­nity and ru­ral news­pa­pers. Un­for­tu­nately, but prob­a­bly not un­sur­pris­ingly, this pub­li­ca­tion is on that list.

There’s no ar­gu­ment that it’s been hard to sus­tain the Waitaki Her­ald for the last cou­ple of months.

At this stage, we don’t have a firm time­line for the last pub­li­ca­tion of our news­pa­per, but when­ever it hap­pens, it won’t be the end.

Stuff’s di­rec­tion is unashamedly to move our news on­line, and we will con­tinue to share your sto­ries through the largest news site in New Zealand and through Neigh­bourly.

The Waitaki Her­ald is a lovely wee pa­per, and I would love to see some­one lo­cal pick it up and make a go of it. It doesn’t fit with Stuff’s cor­po­rate mix, but it has mas­sive po­ten­tial and a very loyal read­er­ship.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est for pur­chas­ing the pa­per are open un­til March 2. Drop a line to trans­for­ma­tionof­ if you’re in­ter­ested.
