The Daily Liberal has announced plans to boost its online local journalism in Dubbo and the surrounding region with the launch of new subscription packages.

The local news subscriptions coming soon to the newspaper’s website, www.dailyliberal.com.au, will offer unrestricted around-the-clock online access to all of the local news, sport, opinion and community information produced by the Daily Liberal’s team of Dubbo-based journalists led by editor Lynn Rayner.

Full website access will include access to the latest national news and sport, plus lifestyle and travel updates, as well as the option to receive breaking news alerts and regular e-newsletters direct to your inbox.

“We are Dubbo’s go-to news source, and have been for over 140 years. Over that time our journalism has proven its essential role in the life of our city and the region,” Daily Liberal editor Lynn Rayner said.

“With more and more of our readers connecting with us online, the introduction of our local news subscriptions will allow us to boost our online journalism to meet the modern demands of the communities we serve.”

The launch date and details of subscription offers and prices will be announced in coming weeks.

“Through our new subscriptions, we will seek to foster greater community support for our local journalism which we know is deeply valued by our audiences for its essential role in keeping Dubbo informed, entertained and connected,” Mrs Rayner said.

“The tremendous growth of our online audience in recent years shows the value our community sees in our journalism. By subscribing for online access, readers will be helping the Daily Liberal continue its mission to deliver the local journalism that Dubbo residents trust.”

By subscribing, readers will be helping the Daily Liberal continue its mission to deliver local journalism our residents trust.

The refresh of www.dailyliberal.com.au has paved the way for the introduction of subscriptions.

“Our new site delivers a better reader experience and convenient access to the latest local news via your smartphone, tablet and desktop,” Mrs Rayner said.
