I am enjoying reading about the early days of the Byron Shire Echo by David Lovejoy. What a colourful, audacious, dedicated group they were. I reckon it would make an excellent TV mini-series.

I recently spent a month in Sydney reading their rubbish, homogeneous local papers with nothing more than one or two stories, usually advertorial, and, of course, real estate.

I came home eager to read the Echo’s independent voice, the local stories and interesting articles written by excellent journalists who don’t mind telling it how it is.

The Echo is one of the things that make the Byron Shire great. Long may it continue

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
