Audiences in Australia’s capital territory are on average younger, higher earning and more politically influential than anywhere else in Australia. Their clout is undeniable, which is why balance, perspective and depth are intrinsic to our reporting. Canberra Times readers demand the full story – explored from all angles, drawn from reliable sources, reported and photographed right as the news breaks and analysed in depth afterwards. The weekday edition contains the top news, sport, business, editorial and opinion pieces, plus arts, entertainment and movie listings. Weekly inserts such as TV Guide, and Food & Wine are brands in their own right, rich in advertiser possibilities. On weekends the Times expands in size, delivering even more choice to our demanding readers.
