Readership Profile

Offering advertisers total coverage of Franklin and North Waikato including the three main shopping centres. Every week 25, 000 copies of the full colour newspaper are produced and distributed from the western side of the southern motorway at Papakura, south to Ramarama, Aririmu and Bombay, south to the Waikato River and across to the Tasman Sea including Pukekohe, Tuakau, Waiuku, Patumahoe, Clarks Beach/Waiau Pa, the Manukau Peninsula and all rural areas within these boundaries.

Because of the geographic proximity to Auckland many of the population commute to work in the city and retain an affluent lifestyle, while retirement housing completes a very cosmopolitan diversity. Franklin is one of the fastest growing areas in New Zealand, attracting industry and lifestylers. It is also the home of NZ Steel, one of New Zealand's largest industries.
