NewsCorp announces August revival of regional news print in QLD

Less than a week after the two major NewsCorp-owned outlets on the Northern Rivers lost their websites and redirected readers via The Daily Telegraph (TDT), sister publications in Queensland announced almost the opposite.

Echonetdaily contributor and video star Mandy Nolan is developing an expanding reputation for her wonderful wit in what has become a crowded field.

Sydney Morning Herald critic Bruce Elder wrote last week that ‘in recent times Australian cultural life has become increasingly urban and city-centric. The idea of any small country town being a hotbed of culture and sophistication is dismissed by city folk proud of their cafe culture and committed to the cultural joys of urban living. It is, therefore, a surprise that the country’s sharpest and wittiest comedic columnist lives modestly in northern NSW and writes for the Byron Echo.’

Mandy’s weekly column can be read in the print edition of the Echo and her hilarious weekly stand-up video columns can be seen right here at Echonetdaily. Hop to our entertainment page to see Mandy as a breast-feeding Jesus in this week’s edition.
