Sunday Star-Times

The Sunday Star-Times brings you the inside story on this week's best news, sport, business and entertainment coverage from New Zealand's leading journalists. Sunday is the ideal day to relax and indulge, and with six great sections and Sunday Magazine, the Sunday Star-Times makes for your perfect weekend read.

Newspaper Details

The Sunday Star-Times is New Zealand's only national broadsheet newspaper with a readership of 554,000. Sunday Star-Times is a newspaper which breaks and backgrounds stories of national significance, at the same time providing a quality leisure read for an audience which has time to take it in. It could best be described as adult, contemporary, relevant and newsworthy.

Its seven sections: News, Sport, Focus, Business, Culture, Escape and Sunday magazine allow defined targeting to a range of key demographics with particular strengths in the middle to upper socio and income levels. This sectional format is one of the most attractive and effective attributes. Each section has a strong and immediately recognisable identity.

Perhaps it is a reflection of our time-poor lives that it is becoming harder to reach people in the busy working week. In an age of media fragmentation it is reassuring for advertisers to know that readers spend on average 63 minutes with the Sunday Star-Times.

The Sunday Star-Times has invested substantial resources to produce a truly national newspaper. It is based in Auckland with news bureaus in Wellington and Christchurch. In addition regional breakouts are offered to advertisers, ensuring both readers and advertisers are well served.
