The Greek Herald is now the only Greek daily newspaper outside of Greece

·

The Greek Herald is now the only Greek daily newspaper printed outside of Greece after The National Herald in the United States recently announced it will be reducing its distribution to three days a week.

In a letter to its readers, The National Herald said that after 107 years of printing six days a week, it had decided to “make a new start” and cut back to printing the newspaper on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday only from February 12.

The newspaper said it made the decision to reduce printing days due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, a reduction in advertisers, and the rising production and distribution costs.

“With this decision we have taken we are protecting the newspaper. We are securing its future. We are making a new, dynamic start,” the statement reads.

This announcement means The Greek Herald in Australia is now the only Greek newspaper outside of Greece printed daily.

Founded in 1926 by George Marsellos and John Stilson, the newspaper continues to keeping readers up to date with the latest community news and captures the true Hellenic spirit of Australia and abroad. 

“For 97 years, The Greek Herald has been entrusted to document the Greek Australian and Cypriot Australian community and their stories, and will continue to serve as a trusted historical archive,” current Publisher of The Greek Herald, Dimitra Skalkos, said.

“Of course, our ability to continue printing daily would not be possible without our supporters, both readers and advertisers. We take this opportunity to thank them for their continued dedication and support of our publication.”
