The Press daily newspaper has the largest circulation and most comprehensive coverage of news and advertising in the South Island of New Zealand. The Press has served the people of Canterbury for 142 years and has grown from a six-page hand-set weekly tabloid sold for sixpence to a six-day a week colour broadsheet paper.
The paper is distributed throughout Canterbury, Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast.
The Press provides more than local, regional, national, and international news. It caters to special interest groups such as farmers and business people, and every publishing day provides pages of features covering such diverse subjects as health, opinion, food, real estate, wine, entertainment, computers and technology, gardening and more.
