BLACKTOWN has a new local newspaper, The Blacktown News.
The Blacktown News fills a gap in the city’s media landscape by providing regular local news in digital and hard copy formats delivered to over 120 strategic distribution points throughout the Blacktown LGA.
The Blacktown News has been developed in conjunction with the respected Western Sydney media company, Access News Australia, publishers of Western Sydney Business Access (WSBA).
Blacktown, as one of the state’s fastest growing cities has undergone a significant transformation over recent years.

Blacktown’s population is set to rise from 400,000 to 612,000 residents by 2041. By 2035 Blacktown’s population bypass that of Tasmania’s based on current growth statistics.
The Blacktown News is the print and digital media resource that connects residents and visitors to the city’s diverse community, its progress, business opportunities and lifestyle.
Publisher, Michael Walls said The Blacktown News is a quality media voice that champions local businesses, community interests and the informs the city’s diverse community.
“This is an historic event for Blacktown. With so much happening in the city it’s ridiculous that there has not been for some time now a dedicated independent printed newspaper to showcase our city to residents and visitors,” said Mr Walls.
The Blacktown News will be produced by local journalists with years of experience covering Blacktown and Western Sydney.
“Through my association with WSBA we have developed a strong connection with Blacktown over many years. The News is created by journalists with many years’ experience reporting on Blacktown for major news organizations. Our local knowledge means we can report the stories that matter.”
Mr Walls said the reaction from businesses and leaders to the news of the launch had been overwhelmingly supportive.
Member for Blacktown and former mayor of Blacktown City, Stephen Bali said Blacktown needed a strong local newspaper.
“As the local member I welcome the launch of the Blacktown News. This paper will fill the void in our local media environment,” Mr Bali said.
“It’s essential that as our city evolves, residents and businesses have a trusted source of local news that keeps them informed about local events, people and progress as well as holding our elected representatives to account.”
President of Greater Backdown Chamber of Commerce, Trevor Oldfield said: “It is both exciting and humbling to play a part in the launch of Blacktown’s new local newspaper.
“The Blacktown News will quickly become a wonderful conduit for information from all levels of Government, local Business and of course your Business Chamber.
’Having a voice whether it be through social media, print media or in a networking environment is crucial to succeeding today in Business.”
The Blacktown News is a platinum media partner for the Blacktown Chamber of Commerce. 
The first edition of The Blacktown News will be published in mid-March, 2021.
For a short time, The Blacktown News is offering foundation advertiser packages for businesses looking to reach Blacktown’s diverse community.
