This week a new website was launched that is dedicated to bringing news to Brisbane. The Brisbane Times website is owned by Fairfax Digital and follows a different module to our interstate counterparts who also have local offline newspapers from Fairfax.
Following the current trend of bringing online content to a local level, Fairfax is the latest one to jump on board. Personally I wouldn’t have thought that Brisbane needed a specialised news website, however I must admit I was impressed when I visited today and saw an article on Internet Guru Dr Vint Cerf who I happened to see speak at a lunch today in Brisbane.
Already showing advertising by the Qld Government, the Brisbane Times website will provide another Brisbane website for local advertisers to leverage their increasing online media spend. It will be interesting to see how the Brisbane times stacks up to the already existing Courier Mail website by News.
