HistoryEdit

The paper was first published in 1912 as the North West Champion. In 1968, the newspaper was the first provincial press to convert from letterpress printing to high resolution web offset printing. The newspaper's proprietor, Harry Sullivan, commemorated the change with a new title. On 21 March 1968, the Moree Champion, Vol. 1, No. 1, new series, was published as a sixty four page issue containing some sections in colour.[3]

DigitisationEdit
