Of­fice changes com­ing at the Times

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - Chris­tian Berechree chris­tian.berechree @south­bur­nett­times.com.au

AS A team, we love telling the many amaz­ing sto­ries the North Bur­nett has to of­fer.

Over time, as the me­dia en­vi­ron­ment changes and shifts, we have had to re­think the best and most ef­fec­tive way to do this.

You will no doubt have no­ticed some changes to how our team is set up.

As a team, we have made the de­ci­sion to close our Monto and Mun­dub­bera of­fices and cen­tralise our team in Gayn­dah.

Our Biggen­den of­fice re­mains open.

I wanted to per­son­ally write this let­ter to as­sure all of you, our val­ued read­ers, that this does not mean news com­ing from these towns will drop off or be less of a pri­or­ity.

It is sim­ply a de­ci­sion we have made as a busi­ness to make sure we’re best placed to meet the de­mands of a chang­ing me­dia land­scape.

Our jour­nal­ists will still reg­u­larly travel to all the towns in the North Bur­nett, and they are al­ways a phone call or email away if there is news to be re­ported.

Of course, there will be an ad­just­ment pe­riod as we get used to a new way of do­ing things, but it won’t be long be­fore we’re back to nor­mal.

I un­der­stand and ac­cept this will not be a wel­come de­ci­sion for some in the com­mu­nity.

There is a great deal of pride in the towns through­out the North Bur­nett, and for good rea­son.

But we re­main com­mit­ted to telling all your sto­ries.
