Murray pionner 2

The Riverland’s oldest Newspaper 'The Murray Pioneer’ will become a weekly newspaper from next month.

Currently the paper is bi-weekly with editions on Tuesday and Friday.

The change will result in thicker editions, containing more Riverland content.

Paul Mitchell, Editor of the Murray Pioneer said “most regional newspapers are already Wednesday weekly newspapers and the pioneer itself was a weekly paper until 1980”

The paper was first printed in 1892 and the change will take effect on July the 3rd
