The Western Herald is set to receive a $10,000 boost, after being successful in the Federal Coalition Government’s Public Interest News Gathering (PING) program.

“The Western Herald is an iconic newspaper in my electorate delivering high quality local news to a very loyal readership,” Mr Coulton said.

“This grant will go towards staffing and other costs to ensure public interest journalism continues to be available to the people of Bourke and surrounds.

“It is so important our country communities remain informed and connected through news outlets such as the Western Herald.”

Mr Coulton said it has been a challenging time for news outlets around the Parkes electorate.
