Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Ken Bur­rowes Edi­to­rial Direc­tor Com­mu­nity News

THE Cock­burn Gazette is recom­mit­ting it­self to bring­ing you the best in lo­cal news and in­for­ma­tion.

Com­mu­nity News Group – pub­lisher of this news­pa­per and a host of oth­ers right across the greater Perth metropoli­tan area, plus our lead­ing lo­cal news web­site com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au – is in­tro­duc­ing changes to bet­ter ser­vice our au­di­ences with mar­ket-lead­ing lo­cal jour­nal­ism. Th­ese changes in­clude some vari­a­tion in pub­li­ca­tion days and from next week the Cock­burn Gazette will be de­liv­ered on Thurs­days.

Com­mu­nity News’ vi­sion state­ment is to Strengthen Com­mu­ni­ties by Cam­paign­ing, In­form­ing and Con­nect­ing, a state­ment our edi­to­rial team lives and breathes each day.

We have also com­mit­ted our­selves to be First and Fairest.

We know it’s im­por­tant for you to be up to date with lo­cal af­fairs and events, and we strive to pub­lish news you need to know first to our web­site, com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au.

And we pride our­selves on our in­de­pen­dent jour­nal­ism – fair, bal­anced and hon­est.

Un­like some smaller pub­lish­ers known to push their own agen­das, we will re­port with­out fear or favour, and we’ll let you draw your own opin­ion.

Of­fi­cial num­bers show Perth au­di­ences are ap­pre­ci­at­ing our ap­proach, con­sum­ing more of our con­tent.

The lat­est au­dited read­er­ship data shows sig­nif­i­cant growth in the year to March 30 for our 12 mast­heads and web­site.

The 12 ti­tles and full net­work dig­i­tal had 913,000 read­ers in March 2019, an in­crease of 91,000, or 11.1 per cent, from March 2018.

Com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au goes from strength to strength as a source of lo­cal news. In May we recorded 1.699 mil­lion page views and in June we have grown our face­book au­di­ence over 100,000 fol­low­ers.

Thank you for read­ing our con­tent, and we look for­ward to shar­ing more lo­cal sto­ries that mat­ter to you.
