Financial assistance for regional newspapers

After 110 years, the Barrier Daily Truth, printed our last edition on Saturday, March 28. The newspaper services many in the Far West of NSW and provides a trustworthy news source.

This has devastated not only the employees but our community, especially our elderly, whom don’t have access to the internet, some not even a television. Thanks to the Sunraysia Daily, a regional Victorian that has faced the same fate, has covered the issue along with the Member for Murray Helen Dalton shedding some light on the possibility of funding being available for regional newspaper (see link below).

We are looking to receive some financial support to help get the paper through this shut down period. We know many people in the community would like to see it up and running again. If we can receive assistance it might set precedent to save other regional newspapers from the same fate.

Please, please be our voice and help bring back our regional newspapers.
