We are proud to have served the entire Coromandel Peninsula for over two decades.

Our mission has been steadfast, to share compelling stories, shed light on pivotal issues, and provide insights into life on the Coromandel Peninsula.

With approximately 9,000 copies printed weekly and a readership estimated at 18,000, we remain deeply committed to connecting our community.

The Informer is an unwavering independent news source, and for almost 1,100 issues we have achieved this goal. More recently,  our weekly publication has been complemented by both local and seasonal magazines that reach thousands throughout the Coromandel region, and extending to Auckland and the Waikato. Through all our publications, our core ethos is to deliver the critical news, local matters, and significant events that shape our community’s narrative.

Today, the Coromandel faces unique challenges, from environmental shifts and coastal protection to the vitality of marine life and the intricacies of transport, tourism, hospitality, housing, and farming. These issues affect us collectively, forging a connectedness that is rare in larger urban areas. Our community’s diverse perspectives on addressing these matters are unified by one common goal: ensuring this community flourishes and maintains a safe, sustainable lifestyle for generations to come. It’s inspiring to be a part of all of this and as much as Stan and I have been challenged since we arrived twenty months ago, we have enjoyed the journey, love the people and from our home in Whitianga, we look forward to building on this for the next season.

In 2024 , we’re committed to continuing to bring you a weekly newspaper and have plans to expand our distribution throughout the Peninsula. Part of this expansion involves significant investments in our digital infrastructure. We are enhancing our online presence with  a new website, delving into the creation of more video and audio content, and dedicating additional resources to improving the quality of our storytelling.

This investment will allow us to connect and reach more people across our community than ever before, but to bring our vision to full fruition, we need your support. By choosing to advertise with The Informer, you are helping to champion independent journalism and helping protect the voice of the Coromandel Peninsula.
