The Whangarei Report is distribution free, each Thursday and now covers households from south of the Brynderwyns, across to Dargaville and north to Oakura.
The Whangarei presents an even gender split in its reader base. These high value readers are skewed to being in the top socio-economic levels, earning incomes well above the regional average. A large proportion of these readers are home owners, who like new ideas to improve their home.
