A consortium of media executives have founded NewsFarm, a regional journalism company looking to establish mastheads in more than 100 news deserts, create more than 450 media jobs, and publish more than 5,000 local news stories each week. NewsFarm’s website says it wants to “create a quality and sustainable media sector for regional Australia within three years”, in an attempt to remedy the shuttering of 194 local newsrooms since early 2019.
