News Corp to launch digital Gippsland mastheads

News Corp Australia is planning to launch more than 50 digital-only mastheads nationwide with two of them in Gippsland expected to be operating by the end of September.

According to MEDIAWEEK, titles for the Latrobe Valley and wider Gippsland will be among the first 15 in Australia to launch in the next two months.

News Corp said the new digital titles will cover local crime and court stories planning and development schools, health and lifestyle.

Subscribers will have also access to other News Corp content.

The move will add more pressure to existing Gippsland newspapers such as the Latrobe Valley Express and Gippsland Times which have been impacted by Covid-related revenue drops.

Some newspapers have even folded since the beginning of the pandemic, including the Yarram Standard and Leongatha's Great Southern Star. Others like the Bairnsdale Advertiser have changed their publishing schedule.
