Emergency support to help regional print media survive in Victoria


The Victorian government has announced an advertising boost through regional media organisations, pledging to spend $4.7 million in advertising over six months to promote awareness about Coronavirus protection measures to regional and country communities. The government developed the package in consultation with the Victorian Country Press Association. 

"We’re giving regional papers the certainty and support they need to keep writing, keep printing and keep employing Victorians,” Premier Dan Andrews said.
