Same great weekly paper. Same great rural content. Same great trusted product.

Font Public Relations is excited to announce that we have acquired the Tasmanian Country newspaper from News Corp Australia.

This means that instead of closing, the Tasmanian Country – the Voice of Rural Tasmania – will now continue to be published weekly.

Now 100 per cent locally owned, 100 per cent locally produced and 100 per cent independently edited by Karolin MacGregor and reporter-at-large Roger Hanson.

We are also pleased to announce that the team behind the proposed Island Country newspaper – Karolin MacGregor, Leena Lavonius and James Young – have joined us, making a great newspaper even better.

At Font, we believe community and regional newspapers play a vital role in Tasmania’s social and economic life and we are proud to have been able to save the Tasmanian Country from closure.

This will ensure rural Tasmania continues to have a voice for many years to come.

The acquisition of Tasmanian Country brings our stable of newspapers to six – The Tasmanian Country, Derwent Valley Gazette (both weekly), Sorell Times, Tasman Gazette, East Coast View (monthly), and Tasmanian Business Reporter (quarterly – published under licence from the TCCI).

    Great Newspaper. Miss it though, now the Yolla Post Office now doesn’t deliver it on Fridays like it use to.
