The Port Stephens Examiner has been dealt another blow as regional newspapers struggle to keep their print additions alive in these trying times.

The Port Stephens council has voted to no longer advertise public notices in the Port Stephens Examiner.

Kate Washington MP for Port Stephens took to Facebook to to voice her disappointment with the decision of Port Stephens Council.

This decision will see important public information hidden on various pages of Council’s website, reducing transparency and undermining community trust.

By pulling the $$ spent on these notices, Council’s also risking the viability of our local newspaper.

It’s a low blow for The Examiner when it was the only regional non-daily newspaper to survive ACM’s recent COVID-19 stand down.
