About us

McPherson Media Group

The McPherson Media Group is an independent rural and regional publishing group comprising:
  • newspaper, magazine and online publishing
  • newspaper and magazine printing
  • commercial sheet-fed printing
  • marketing and design services
With its headquarters in Shepparton, the McPherson Media Group offers a unique, complementary range of information and communications services to clients across the Goulburn and Murray valleys. The Group is owned by the fourth generation of the McPherson family, who remain involved and committed to the business at a board level. The Group remains powerfully attached and committed to its regional publishing roots - it is deeply engaged in supporting the development and health of its regional community. Within the McPherson Media Group, our commitment to our customers, our people and our communities has been an important driver behind where we are today. It is also the guiding influence for where we want to be tomorrow.

Our business includes:

Newspaper publishing

The McPherson family has owned the Shepparton News since 1888; it is the oldest family-owned newspaper group in Australasia and one of just three independent groups publishing daily newspapers. A number of other regional and rural newspapers have been added to the Group during the past 40 years. They include:
  • The Riverine Herald (Echuca)
  • Kyabram Free Press
  • Tatura Guardian
  • Campaspe News (Rochester)
  • Benalla Ensign
  • Deniliquin Pastoral Times
  • Cobram Courier
  • Southern Riverina News (Finley)
  • Seymour Telegraph
  • The McIvor Times (Heathcote)
  • Country News (Goulburn Valley)
Each of these newspapers has a distinct personality and is tailored to meet the needs of the community in which it circulates. Each newspaper is also available on-line, thus meeting the needs of readers who prefer electronic delivery of their local news and information. There is, however, an overriding philosophy common to each of them - each is dedicated to enhancing the economic, political and social well-being of its community. At the McPherson Media Group, we expect our managers and staff to exemplify that same philosophy - both in the way they treat our customers and the manner in which they actively engage with their communities.

Commercial printing

Complementing the web-printing business is the commercial printing operation situated in Mooroopna. With the ability to produce full colour sheet-fed printed products, with a quick turnaround and delivery time, Edge Print is able to service a state-wide market for high-quality commercial printing and retail printed products.

Marketing and design services

With the resources within the McPherson Media Group, we can, collectively, offer marketing and design services to meet every need. From graphic design to printing, marketing advice and service, the Group has the resources to assist in the promotion and success of every client's business.
