Robert: The Newfoundland Herald ends production
Written by Robert Shawn on September 21, 2022
After 76 years in operation, The Newfoundland Herald has printed it’s final edition.
“While it is always sad to see a part of our history go, it is also a time to reflect on the many accomplishments of The Newfoundland Herald,” General Manager Lindsey Andrews said in a statement.
Citing the ever changing landscape as it relates to technology and the shift from print to digital, Newfoundland Broadcasting Company Limited has made the decision cease operations relating to The Newfoundland Herald. The Newfoundland Herald website will continue to exist in the form of post archival editions.
“We also want to sincerely thank all of our team at The Newfoundland Herald for their loyal work and contribution to this final chapter as a weekly print edition,” Andrews continued. “It truly is the end of an era.”
The Sunday Herald, as it was originally called, debuted in 1946, selling 10 000 copies in just two hours. Eventually being re-named to The Newfoundland Herald, the success of the weekly tabloid would lead its founder, Geoff Stirling, to launch the NTV television network and OZFM radio station.
