Free, weekly newspaper to launch in the Nambucca Valley

Nambucca Valley News Of The Area will launch on Friday May 14.


FROM Friday May 14, the Nambucca Valley will have its own weekly newspaper once more.

Independent media company News Of The Area (NOTA), who currently operate free weekly newspapers on the Coffs Coast, Myall Coast and Port Stephens, will bring a fourth member to the NOTA family of newspapers, with the launch of Nambucca Valley News Of The Area.

Following on from the successful launch of Coffs Coast News Of The Area in July 2020, News Of The Area Director Mick Wright is looking forward to bringing a quality, independent, printed news source to the Nambucca Valley.

“We couldn’t be more excited to launch Nambucca Valley News Of The Area,” said Mr Wright.

“The community in the region is such a strong one and deserves its own newspaper.”

News Of The Area hopes to fill the gap left by the closure of the Nambucca Guardian, and provide Nambucca Valley locals with a source of accurate and entertaining local news and sport.

“We are going to take what we have learnt from operating our three current papers, while making the paper as specific to the Nambucca Valley as possible,” said Editor Douglas Connor.

“This is a dedicated, local news source and will feature only the news that is relevant to the local community,” Mr Connor said.

“You won’t see news from Kempsey or Coffs, it will be all about the Nambucca Valley!”

Mr Connor said the News Of The Area team can’t wait to start telling amazing local stories.

“Nambucca is a unique place, with unique stories to tell.

“Let us help you bring those stories to the world.”

Nambucca Valley News Of The Area will launch on Friday May 14 and will be delivered to community locations and businesses across the Nambucca Valley LGA.

  1. Hello,
    what wonderful news! Alan and I moved to Way Way in Dec 2019 and think Nambucca Valley is just the place to be. We love it!
    In my former life, I owned and operated a trade journal so if you are looking for part time employees I might be helpful to you.
    Good luck! And thank you for bringing the news of our community to our community!
