Examiner top of the mastheads

THE voice of the Clarence Valley, The Daily Examiner, is getting louder and stronger every day.

Figures released today list the Examiner as the fastest growing newspaper in Australia for the first quarter of 2009.

Of more than 30 Australian regional daily publications only one other paper besides The Daily Examiner recorded circulation growth, The Townsville Bulletin. Co-incidentally, former Examiner journalist, Peter Gleeson, is the editor of that paper.

The official Australian Bureau of Circulation (ABC) figures showed the Examiner had increased its circulation by more than 2.66 per cent in the first quarter compared to the corresponding period last year.

Daily Examiner general manager Judy Lewis said the excellent results reflected the hard work and dedication of the paper's present team.

“It also shows that unlike many other districts the Clarence Valley is staying positive in these difficult economic times,” she said.

“I'd like to thank all our loyal readers for continuing to support the paper and also thank those new readers who are now part of the Examiner family.”
