It was another great milestone for this daily newspaper as we continue to build and thrive in the digital space.
At the same time, for the fifth year in a row, The Gympie Times has been named a finalist for Community Daily Newspaper of the Year at the annual Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association (PANPA) awards. Our chief photographer Renee Albrecht is also a finalist in the News photography category.
This is a big deal and great testimony to the hard word, professionalism and dedication of The Gympie Times team. It is also a great testimony to the loyalty of our readers, both in print and online, and for that we thank each and every one of you.
The GT prides itself on a strong and true connection to the community, and is completely committed to keeping the region informed, involved and entertained.
Whatever we are doing - and I know not everybody agrees with everything we do all of the time - it is working.
The most recent data analysis of our website shows a 40% growth in page views since mid-2016 and more than 51% growth in unique visitors (online readers) - a growth that shows no sign of slowing.
