The news site, InQueensland (www.inqld.com.au), has been developed by the same publisher who set up the successful InDaily news operation in South Australia more than 10 years ago.
Using the SA model, InQueensland will cover news, politics, business, arts and culture, with a free email alert sent to subscribers around midday each working day.
InQueensland’s inaugural publishing editor is Peter Atkinson, who has had a 30-year career in media and journalism and has an in-depth understanding of Queensland.
The reporting team includes experienced Queensland journalists Dennis Atkins, Sean Parnell, Christine Jackman, Bob McDonald, Nicole Bond, Michael Blucher and Brett Debritz.
Solstice Media’s managing director Paul Hamra said there was a big opportunity for more journalism voices in the Queensland market – a lesson learned in South Australia with the success of InDaily.
“We undertook local research and found there was almost a desperation in Queensland for a new and different news service, digging deeper into political and business issues affecting Queenslanders,” he said.
“Like InDaily, InQueensland will be all about local quality independent journalism, adding a much-needed and free voice to the local market.
“We have assembled some of the best writers in Queensland to produce a lively and insightful publication every day about the state and its issues.”
Solstice Media is a South Australian-owned company that publishes InDaily, SALIFE, CityMag and The Lead.
