Waikato Times Celebrates 150 Years

A river of ink runs through our region and has done so for the last 150 years. Like our mighty awa, the Waikato Times has helped support, sustain and challenge our local communities since 1872. 

We've been there through good times and bad to chalk up the daily news, hold the powerful to account, advocate on our readers' behalf and to celebrate the region and the people within it. We've grown up together from the early days of horse and cart and ramshackle dwellings on the lip of the river to the thriving city and towns that make up Waikato today. 

The Waikato Times has bobbed along in the current of history, and moved with the times from paper to pixels. But for all of that we have been constant in an ever changing world.
