About Us

Launched in February 1985, the Auckland City Harbour News is the baby of the Suburban Newspapers family. Until that date, the company had papers going into homes everywhere in Auckland, except for the inner city and the launch of the paper finally saw the company's cross-Auckland coverage completed.

To begin with, the Auckland City Harbour News had a small team of reporters working from an office in Grey Lynn but later the reporting team merged with its sister paper, the Central Leader and now has an editorial staff of seven working across both titles.

Initially the paper competed with the Inner City News, but when that folded in 1989 it left the Auckland City Harbour News the only free local paper being delivered to the inner city suburbs. Three years later, a Friday edition of the paper was added, filling the last gap in the company's circulation across Auckland for its Friday papers.

The Auckland City Harbour News is delivered to close to 20,000 homes from Westmere and Waterview in the west, through Kingsland and Pt Chevalier, to Herne Bay, Ponsonby and Grey Lynn and while the area is probably best known for its cafes and shopping, we know it as a vibrant community filled with talented artists, great schools and passionate community groups.

Our stories focus on the great achievements of people living in our area, as well as highlighting issues that affect and concern them. We cover everything from the quirky to the serious, but are always mindful of four main principles - stories have to be relevant to our readers as well as being fair, accurate and balanced.
