Sunraysia Daily to print on Saturday

THE Sunraysia Daily will revive its printed publication with a Saturday edition.

After temporarily ceasing all its printed publications last weekend due to the economic impact of the coronavirus, the Elliott Newspaper Group decided on Thursday morning to print a Saturday only edition while the crisis continues.

Elliott Newspaper Group managing director Ross Lanyon said the move wouldn't have been possible without the support of staff.

"We have seen an enormous community push for us to revive a printed product this week and we are listening to our readers," Mr Lanyon said.

"While we have a strong online presence with our revamped website, people still love their paper and are desperate for it back.

"In the current economic climate, we are unable to revive a daily product until the crisis subsides, but we still want to provide a quality Saturday edition for our community.

"We wouldn't be able to achieve this without the support of our amazing staff."

Mr Lanyon said the company had registered for the Federal Government's Job Keeper Stimulus Package, which was announced by Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday.

"We are not alone in going through these tough times at the moment, but this is our 100th year, and we are committed to being around for a lot longer yet," he said.
