The first issue of Northern News hit the streets in 1919. Owned by the Berry Brothers, the paper continued to flourish. A year's subscription was ten shillings and postage was free. After some shareholder and ownership changes and a shift to twice weekly publishing, the paper was bought by Independent News Limited in 1985 and became part of the Independent Community Newspapers group, a subsidiary of INL.
In 2002, the paper reverted to a weekly and dropped its cover price, expanding its coverage to the whole of the Far North. The Northern News, now part of the Suburban Newspapers Limited group within Fairfax NZ, continues to lead community news and views. It is delivered to more than 12,000 urban and rural homes across the district.
The Circulation area includes Northern News circulates to Kaikohe, Kawakawa, Moerewa, Ohaeawai, Okaihau, North & South Hokianga, Kaitaia and rural properties in surrounding areas. Northern News is also incorporated in the Bay Chronicle on Thursdays and distributed to Doubtless Bay, Mangonui, Waipapa, Paihia, Opua, Russell and Kerikeri.
