Fairfax NZ News launches

17:00, Aug 31 2011

From today, Stuff will be bringing you stories from the new Fairfax NZ News service.

The service adds to Stuff's award-winning news mix, which already includes material from our own staff journalists and those based in other Fairfax Media newsrooms across the country.

Readers can look forward to far more breaking news, great people stories and analysis from around New Zealand every day.

National news remains Stuff's focus but improved agreements with international press agencies will also boost the international offering to our readers.  

Although borne out of the closure of the New Zealand Press Association, the Fairfax NZ News service offers much more than just a replacement. It is a live multimedia news service, increasing the number of distinctive stories, pictures and video across Fairfax Media's stable of newspapers and websites.

In conjunction with the Fairfax NZ News launch, all editors across the group have agreed to a charter of independence that reinforces our commitment to the highest professional standards.
