List of print media in New Zealand
This is a list of print media in New Zealand. New Zealand once had several daily newspapers in each major city, but as in other countries the medium was damaged by radio and then television, and each city now only has one daily newspaper.
There are no truly national newspapers, although The New Zealand Herald and to a lesser extent The Dominion Post are both available outside their core areas. The four main centres of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin are served by The New Zealand Herald, The Dominion Post, The Press, and the Otago Daily Times. In addition, there are several weekly newspapers with a national scope, including two tabloids. There are also numerous low-budget weekly newspapers catering for particular suburbs or for subcultures including the gay and farming communities and various ethnic groups.
