Hopes fade for saving local papers


The prospect of saving our local papers is looking bleak.

A number of regional News Corp mastheads will stop printing this week - including The Northern Miner and Burdekin Advocate.

Capricornia MP Michelle Landry says she is yet to receive a response to a petition she submitted to News Corp last Friday, in a last ditch effort to save the local publications.
The Northern Miner and Burdekin Advocate - will continue to appear under the 'Regional' section in the Townsville Bulletin.
