Company Description

The Border Mail is the #1 news service in the North East and Southern NSW.

A snapshot of the history of The Border Mail, as written by senior journalist Howard Jones: 'It will be tied to no political party, to no political clique, to no political candidate.' And so The Border Morning Mail's first editor, Mr Hamilton Charnock Mott, started his first editorial on October 24, 1903. The first issue of The Border Mail was on October 24, 1903. It was published by Hamilton and Decimus Mott and there were probably about 400 copies printed, the price of which was one penny. It promised its first readers that it would be strictly independent. From 1903, The Border Mail has informed a widespread community. Not only has The Border Mail informed, it also has contributed to the financial well-being and growth of this great region. Regular investment into the community by way of capital expenditure, paid salaries, general expense and sponsorships add up to over $12 million annually.
