Your Daily starts a conversation
"ONE local to another" and creating a local conversation was the topic of a presentation by APN sales director Simon Irwin to local business people on Tuesday night.
The Warwick Daily News has been reporting on the news and views of locals for 150 years, remarkably the latest survey results show that the audience that the Daily News reaches now is 25,000 each week.
General manager Bruce Partridge said the Daily News audience had grown by 79% since 2007.
"It seems that Warwick people can't get enough of local information from either news or advertisers," he said.
"The growth is due to our move into four main mediums - the printed paper, still our most popular medium, our website, mobile technology and social media.
"Many at the talk were surprised to know our Facebook page has just under 8000 'likes'."
Mr Partridge said the Warwick Daily News was now able to provide advertising solutions for businesses across, most of the Darling Downs, Queensland and for some specialised products across Australia.
"We have successfully advertised for local events across the entire southern half of Queensland and far northern NSW," he said.
Editor Jeremy Sollars said contrary to the doom and gloom spread by many media commentators - who are not working journalists - the future of printed newspapers remains strong.
"There is still nothing quite like opening the newspaper in front of you and reading it at your convenience," he said.
"Our print product proudly remains at the head of our suite of ways to deliver local news - with our digital presence strongly complementing it."
