THE popular conception is that the process of news gathering is changing rapidly – that’s only partially true.
We are constantly evaluating ways to keep the Greater Port Macquarie community informed as the premier news source in this district.
With around 65 employees at our Port News/Uptin Print building in Milton Circuit, we remain committed to the cause as strongly as our forebears did when they started this masthead back in 1882.
After nearly 130 years of news delivery, we are as committed as ever to make sure we remain relevant as a source of news, information and entertainment.
Now, we need your help. Today we have posted a feedback forum on our website to allow the public to guide us in our news gathering methods.
July will be an exciting month for the Port News as we consolidate our new management team and embark on delivering a premium news service and window on Greater Port Macquarie. This is not a shallow pitch - it is a firm and ongoing commitment to a relationship with our readers.
We have some questions to prompt you and we dearly value your input.
We would like you to think about the following range of questions and post your feedback below. We’ll run the most constructive (good or bad) replies in the Port News as we move the content revolution forward.
