About Us

Welcome to the new Tasman Gazette, Sorell Times and East Coast View.

The Gazette, the Times and the View are growing from strength to strength and now under new ownership.

In July 2019, Tasmanian communications firm Font PR, owner of the Derwent Valley Gazette, purchased The Tasman Gazette and The Sorell Times.

In October 2019, the firm also revived The East Coast View.

We hope you like the new design, and please be assured while we may look different, you can be confident we will continue to focus on what’s important to the region and its people.

The three papers are independently edited by experienced journalist Martine Haley. 

A local newspaper is only as good as the breadth of local stories it puts a spotlight on, so please don’t hesitate to let us know what’s happening in your world.

To contact Martine, email martineh@fontpr.com.au
