The Herald and Weekly Times Pty Ltd

The Herald & Weekly Times Pty Ltd is the publisher of three market-leading publications – the Herald Sun, Sunday Herald Sun, The Weekly Times.
The HWT newspapers dominate their market and, in terms of circulation and market penetration, are among the most successful in the world.
These days, with the advent of a range of new platforms on which to deliver news, readership of HWT publications is soaring.


The Herald Sun newspaper was established in 1990 with the merger of the afternoon daily, The Herald, and the morning daily, The Sun News-Pictorial. It is Victoria’s paper of choice.

HWT’s newspaper interests date back to the launch in 1840 of The Port Philip Herald, and the company over time developed into Australia’s largest media organisation, with broad investment in newspapers, television, radio and magazines.

Since 1987, HWT has been a division of News Limited, which in turn is part of The News Corporation Limited, whose chairman and CEO is Mr Rupert Murdoch.
With a $340 million print site at Port Melbourne and headquarters in Melbourne’s Southgate precinct, the company has a huge stake in newspapers as a communications medium.
