Peter Tiffany, Editor, Hamilton News
Hamilton News, which has been publishing since 1977, caters for a broad readership including families, young professionals and active retirees.
New Zealand’s largest inland city, Hamilton has a youthful population and is at the centre of one of the richest agricultural areas in the world. Its proximity to major ports in Auckland and Tauranga and its accessibility by rail and expressways provide opportunities for export and import. The city’s future growth is promising, with enormous investment underway in the region including the construction of a multi-billion dollar freight hub development that is set to begin in 2015.
Hamilton News has an established internet presence via a website and Facebook page, which give it much greater reach than was possible prior to those innovations. Hamilton News is a traditional yet innovative local newspaper that serves its communities well.
