Manawatu Standard Online Newspaper

The Manawatu Standard is the daily paper for the Manawatu region based in Palmerston North with satellites in Feilding and Marton. The Manawatu Standard has been recognized as one of the best in New Zealand being a finalist in the 2008 Qantas Media Award for best regional daily newspaper. It won the same category in 2007. The company was first established on 29 November 1880. Since then, the paper has been operated by two other companies: it was purchased by Independent Newspapers Limited (INL) in the 1970s, and acquired by Fairfax Media (then John Fairfax Holdings) on 1 July 2003, when that company purchased INL.
