The Northern Advocate Online Newspaper
The Northern Advocate is the regional daily paper for the city of Whangarei and the Northland Region. The Whangarei Comet and Northern Advertiser was founded in 1875 as a weekly paper by George Edwin Alderton and, despite a small population which lead to predictions the paper would "would go up like a comet, and come down like a stick", the paper flourished and within two years had expanded to 12 pages and become the Northern Advocate and General Advertiser, with a small section printed in Maori. The paper began daily publication in 1902.
