The Gisborne Herald

The Gisborne Herald is a daily newspaper that has served the Gisborne and East Coast region since 1874.

While the paper’s strength is local news, The Herald also has extensive coverage of sport, national, international and business news, six days a week, as well as regular youth, motoring, farming and arts and entertainment sections.

The Gisborne Herald is read daily by 61 percent of the region’s population aged 15 years and over, and in any given week 83 percent of people will read at least one edition of The Gisborne Herald.

Gisborne Herald website

The Gisborne Herald website is an excellent way of reaching Gisborne people not currently living here but who hold the region dear to their hearts, and still have friends and family living here. Anyone thinking of moving to Gisborne or investing here is also likely to be looking up www.gisborneherald.co.nz. By placing an advertisement on the Gisborne Herald website, your business, product or service will gain valuable exposure to these people. You can also then redirect them to your website.

Updated daily with news, sport, photographs, family notices, classified advertising and features, the website allows those outside our circulation area to still benefit from the extensive news coverage provided by The Gisborne Herald, while also contributing to the paper by encouraging more feedback and allowing people to vote on topical issues.
