Wanganui Chronicle


The Wanganui Chronicle as New Zealand's oldest newspaper, celebrated 150 years of proud publishing history in Sept 2006.

Local resident Henry Stokes projected the notion of a newspaper for Petre as the town was called in those days, but having no printing press available in the town at the time approached the technical master at Wanganui Collegiate School, and together they constructed of maire wood and iron a make shift printing press, on which the first edition of the Wanganui Chronicle and Rangitikei Messenger was printed on the 18th Sept 1856.

Initially the paper was fortnightly, selling for 6d. In 1866 the paper went tri-weekly, and in 1871 the Wanganui Chronicle published daily and has done so ever since.

On the 4th June 1867, a local businessman with political aspirations, John Ballance [later to become Prime Minister], published The Wanganui Herald in opposition to the Wanganui Chronicle, which lasted until 1986 when it ceased publication as a daily and was converted into the community newspaper, Wanganui Midweek, now a sister publication, and published by the Wanganui Chronicle.

Today the Wanganui Chronicle is the one of the most successful and vibrant regional dailies in Australasia, having won 16 PANPA awards since 2000.
