The Hervey Bay Independent is the city’s widest circulating print product and the region’s favourite community newspaper.
Independently owned and operated, the Indy, as it has been affectionately known since its inception in 1988, is published in full colour and stapled and trimmed for superior magazine-style quality.
Delivered to more than 22,000 homes each week, the Indy offers superior circulation, penetration and affordability of any other print product available in the city.
It is the advertising vehicle of choice for the majority of small and medium businesses in the city and prides itself on its award-winning format and service standards.
While competitors focus on the doom and gloom, the Indy adopts a philosophy of providing a positive reflection of the community it serves.
The Indy is a responsible corporate citizen and its charity arm raises more than $30,000 each year to give back to the most needy in the community.
Managing director Malcolm Quinn boasts more than 20 years experience as a publisher and has owned a number of other mastheads throughout South-East Queensland.
“We are very proud of the Indy and very grateful for the exceptional support we receive from the business community and our readers.
“We have worked hard to ensure our product sets the standard in editorial, design and achieving desired results for our clients as well as continuing to ingrain ourselves as the product of choice for the ever-growing and rapidly changing city of Hervey Bay.
“It is indeed an honour to offer an alternative and independent voice for the community.”
