We love local news

The Sunshine Coast recently welcomed a fresh, fast and free digital news site called SUNSHINECOASTNEWS.COM.AU, and we are loving it. Brought to you by the publishers of salt and our sister publication My Weekly Preview, we are super excited about the site as it represents a vital investment in independent journalism at a time when the big media corporations are turning their backs on our community. A homegrown news site, it will deliver the stories that matter most to our 330,000-strong population, which is growing daily. Sunshinecoastnews.com will inform, connect and celebrate the region, providing high-quality news, sport and lifestyle coverage, all produced daily by a small, local team. It will provide the top state, national and world stories of the day. The news website will also feature amazing pictures from the Coast’s best snappers (including this stunning warped wave image taken at Mooloolaba by Andrew Carruthers), and engaging columnists. It will offer local organisations, businesses, sporting clubs, schools and special interest groups the chance to share their successes with our community. There will also be compelling sponsored content, ranging from hot property, to DIY, food, travel, motoring, education, money matters, health and wellbeing, pets and special events.
