FROM THE EDITOR
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 email@example.com if you’re interested.
