News Corp announces newspaper cover price increase

News Corp emailed newsagents yesterday about cover price increases.

Dear Newsagent/Distributor,

Effective Monday 27 February 2023, the Monday to Friday cover price of the following publications will increase by 30 cents to $2.80.

  • Herald Sun
  • The Daily Telegraph
  • The Courier-Mail
  • The Advertiser
  • The Mercury
  • NT News
  • Geelong Advertiser
  • Gold Coast Bulletin
  • Townsville Bulletin
  • Cairns Post
  • The Chronicle
  • Sunshine Coast Daily
  • Mackay Daily Mercury

An updated list of all relevant News Corp Australia publication cover prices, retail commissions, prices to retailers, distribution fees (where relevant) and prices to account is provided below.

We ask that you notify customers of the price change and ensure your systems are updated on the effective dates to reflect these changes.

As retail commission increases, so too will your total home delivery remuneration. We will provide the full detail of this change in a separate letter.

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to continuing to partner with you in driving new sales opportunities.

Should you wish to discuss this with us, please feel free to contact our News Retail Support Team.

It amazes me that, especially in Melbourne and Sydney given the products in those cities, people willingly pay to be told what to think.
