Your guide to advertising with Murray Bridge News

About us

Murray Bridge News is your independent local news service, established by local journalist Peri Strathearn in 2020.

We publish stories about what’s happening in South Australia’s Murraylands. We’re all about connecting, empowering and uplifting local people.

As a family-owned business, the decisions which guide us are made in Murray Bridge, not Adelaide or Melbourne; and 100 per cent of our profits remain in the community.

Our four main distribution channels are an email edition which comes out every Thursday, a digital signage network, social media, and this website:

Email edition: 4300 weekly recipients, 41% open rate. MBN Network: 14 display screens at 13 sites, 20,200 estimated weekly viewers. Social media: 7000 Facebook followers, 1100 Instagram followers. Website: 11,000 page views per week, 4000 unique users per week.

What we offer

Sponsored story

$400 per story | Email + MBN Network + social media + website

Our experienced local journalists can help you tell your story, your way. We’ll do all the hard work for you – ask the questions, write the words and take the photos – but you have final say over what we publish. Or you can supply your own words and images.

Sponsored stories are perfect for promoting a new business, new face or upcoming event; or to remind people about the products and services you offer.

Your story will be published on our website, where it will remain discoverable for years; and promoted in our email edition, on the Murray Bridge News Network and our social media channels.
