The daily news blog has been a way for our team to keep you up to date hour by hour in the midst of a global pandemic.
While the ongoing severity of the COVID-19 outbreak across the world should not be downplayed, the conversation has shifted from what we do “now” to what we do “next”.
The need for analysis, in-depth coverage and exclusive content outweighs the “breaking” nature of the news cycle, and with that comes the commitment of more resources to the daily blog.
This means that from Wednesday May 4, this content will resume its place behind our paywall. For full digital access, subscribe to our “welcome” package; it’s only $2 a week for 12 weeks Join | Shepparton News
We loved having you with us as we explored a new way to deliver content directly to you – and we hope you’ll stay with us for the next leg of the journey.
