How to start a newspaper in 2018: The Neighbourhood Paper


Hidden beneath your Facebook feed Australian newspapers and magazines are struggling to turn a profit. Everyone has felt the thinner papers, seen the bigger ads, and cringed at the redundancies.¬† You would be forgiven for thinking that launching a new broadsheet in Sydney would be impossible. However, that’s exactly what The Neighbourhood Paper is doing.

One year after launching the bespoke community paper and online site, Editor-in-Chief Jonathan Samway explains how The Neighbour Paper is different, why readers have an appetite for it and how they’re going to expand across Australia (and hopefully the world). Listen to the entire interview below.

Find the online edition of The Neighbourhood Paper here, and pick up a tangible paper at these locations (and most cafes around Sydney).
