Michael McDonald, Metung VIC

In last week’s letters there were laments about changes to The Echo’s masthead, some of them from former drudges. As a former drudge, editor and current minor shareholder I know that part of The Echo has always been about experimentation – mostly with wine varieties – and I welcome that.

I also welcome the addition of images of community events to the masthead. This creates a constantly changing tableau, which is pretty much the state of news media these days.


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.
