News Limited closes Sunshine Coast titles

News Limited has announced that it will cease publication of three community newspapers and a weekly magazine on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
The Noosa Journal and Weekender were acquired by News Limited in 2006 and 2007 respectively and extended to include local editions in Maroochydore and Caloundra subsequently. Next week’s editions will be their last.
News Limited’s managing director of newspapers and digital products Jerry Harris said: “It is with regret that we are closing these titles, but with continuing slow trading conditions on the Sunshine Coast the reality is that they are no longer commercially viable.
“We have begun consultations with affected staff and intend to redeploy as many as we can into News’ other operations in South East Queensland, but inevitably there will be a number of redundancies.
“News will continue to have a strong presence in the region as the Courier-Mail will strengthen its bureau to improve local coverage, and maintain its involvement with keynote Sunshine Coast sporting and cultural events.”
