Important stuff happens beyond city boundaries
The Regional will be making a quiet entrance into the Australian media scene, taking the approach that publishing will only occur when there is something important to say.
Our target audience is the 37 per cent* of Australians who do not live in a capital city. That figure is growing as we hope our readership will as interest builds.
The aim of The Regional is to support quality journalism on regional Australia. Publishing space will be provided for stories that resonate with people who live outside capital cities, and those who wish they did.
Long-format journalism that explores issues in depth will be a feature of this publication, but don't worry, there will be some some fun as well.
It is a wide and exciting brief but for now, watch this space.

Dale Webster is a regional journalist through and through.
While working on News Corp’s rural masthead The Weekly Times, she carved out a niche for herself telling stories through words and images that resonate with regional Australia.
After moving up through the ranks from cadet to graded journalist on the Bendigo Advertiser, Dale was appointed Managing Editor of the Southern Riverina News before spending a decade at The Border Mail in Albury.
She made a foray into radio news as the weekend reporter for ABC Goulburn Murray before Darwin beckoned and she ventured north to see if crocodiles really do rock and a job on the Northern Territory News.
While there she also worked as the senior reporter on the Sunday Territorian.
Dale is an inaugural recipient of a Walkley Foundation grant for Freelance Journalism on Regional Australia.
