Through campaigns, holding politicians to account and advocating loudly for this region, The Examiner has contributed significantly to making Northern Tasmania one of the great regional cities of the world.
The Examiner is often accused of being parochial, but if we aren't loud, decision makers in the capital won't hear us.
It's said political parties can't win government unless they win over Northern electorates, and to this day The Examiner holds no shame in being the voice of the people to ensure we get our fair share.
The fortunes of the region and the newspaper have been linked - almost inextricably - since the 1840s.
As the voice of our community, The Examiner also lives and shares in the triumphs and tragedies of individuals, as a region and as a state through our words and pictures.- Corey Martin
While The Examiner has changed significantly since it was first published on March 12, 1942 - from a sole print product to a multi-platform digital organisation - the mission remains the same.
Campaigning for change is an ethos that has guided the direction of the masthead from that day to this.
As the voice of our community, The Examiner also lives and shares in the triumphs and tragedies of individuals, as a region and as a state through our words and pictures.
We haven't always got it right, but our endeavour always has been and will be to serve the people of Northern Tasmania by advocating for change, celebrating successes, highlighting failures and ensuring everyone is heard.
This has been the mission of the 17 editors, thousands of editorial, advertising and production staff in the 180 years to date and there is no reason for change.
A huge thank you must go to our print and online subscribers and advertisers because, without you all, none of what we do is possible.
So cheers to 180 years, long may the mission carry on for another century and beyond.
