Kinglake Ranges News continues as Murrindindi districts’ number one news site with 96 per cent (Google Analytics) of the local audience in the last 28 days.
We sometimes aggregate reports from other sources (with acknowledgement), but whenever possible we are there live.
With over 60,655 (AWStats) more viewers between July – November than our nearest competitor and over 15,000 (AWStats) readers this January, Kinglake Ranges News has established itself as Murrindindi district’s #1 news site ‘off the smell of an oily rag.’
Editor, Ashley Geelan, said it had been “a massive achievement to do this and turn my communications skills and journalism training into a business.”
“It’s been tough to do without income to build this … I’m proud of what I’ve acheived.
“Apart from some ad revenue from Google, I earn nothing from this but seeing I was working for free anyway before launching Kinglake Ranges News it doesn’t matter.
“But we do hope to begin local advertising and launch some new features in 2019,” Geelan said.
“One local media outlet even copied our idea just months after we launched,” Geelan added.
If it happens in the Kinglake Ranges, Goulburn Valley, Diamond Valley, Yarra Valley or Plenty Valley we endeavour to report live whenever possible.
