Michael Wilkins, managing director NSW of News Corp Australia said: “Following emma audience data analysis and demographic research conducted earlier this year, we gained a deeper understanding of the lifestyle needs, wants and desires of the upper and lower north shore demographics.

“Knowing where locals like to eat, where they prefer to shop, how they like to live, what they spend their money on and where they choose to travel informed our decision on what to present in their new and refined, glossy magazine-style newspapers.”

News Corp Australia Prestige and Lifestyle Director, Nick Smith said: “Our NewsLocal community mastheads such as the Mosman Daily, North Shore Times and the Wentworth Courier reach the most affluent audiences in Australia, and right at their doorstep.

“This is an incredible and integral offering of the newly launched News Prestige Network, where we can now provide high reach of the right audience through digital, or we can effectively geo-target prestige audiences at a community or even street level.

“As part of the News Prestige Network, the Mosman Daily and North Shore Times provide fantastic cut-through for advertisers opening a new store, dealership or branch in an affluent area or can garner grassroots support for campaigns, be they retail or brand focussed,” Mr
Smith said.

Retaining their positions as the ultimate local real estate bibles, the new Mosman Daily and North Shore Times will feature who’s buying and selling what, latest auction results, sneak peeks into beautiful homes, stylish home accessories and where to buy them and interviews with north shore identities in their homes.
