The Katherine Times is on the move, in more ways than one.
The newspaper is shifting locations into a new fit-for-purpose office in the Oasis Shopping Centre.
Our relocation should be complete by the end of the year.
The Katherine Times will move into the outer office space or “police beat” being vacated by NT Police.
“It is an exciting time for the KTimes, the town and the staff here,” Katherine Times’ editor Chris McLennan said.
“We have a whole new team in place, with a whole new energy so a new office is just the ticket, an investment in the future of Katherine.”
Australian Community Media group managing editor David Coren said the Katherine Times was kicking goals as a dual print and online news service.
The paper’s website cranked over more than half a million page views for August, a record.
“To build on that success, the Katherine Times’ website is being redesigned to give it a modern and dynamic look, to even better engage with its audience,” Mr Coren said.
“An investment in new technology is part of that upgrade so a move to a new fit-for-purpose office makes good sense.”
Our commitment to our popular weekly newspaper does not change, thank you for your ongoing support for our print edition.
You want local news and that’s what you will continue to get.
The same goes for our website.
We look at your comments, so we give you more of what you want – and better.
In a month or two we will have clocked up 10,000 followers on our Facebook site, another milestone.
One of the reasons we are moving from Katherine Terrace is take advantage of a higher foot traffic in the shopping centre, so make sure you drop in and say hello.
And keep a watch on the old police station as we engage local contractors and tradespeople to prepare signage and the office fitout.
