For almost 92 years, The Canberra Times has been serving the national city as the source that Canberrans trust when it comes to the news that matters.
While our commitment to independence, holding authority to account and shining a light on injustice has not changed in that time, the way we deliver news certainly has.
This masthead has never had more readers. It reaches more than 730,000 people a month, and more than 600,000 of them use this website.
That's the highest proportion of digital readers of any major news publication in the country.
It is also why we are constantly looking to improve our digital offering, including this modern, new-look website.
Canberra is home to some of the world's most knowledgeable people, and you expect — and deserve — to be able to access the latest news and analysis from the city, the nation and the world, quickly and in the way that best serves you.
Our fresh, new-look website delivers a faster, cleaner, and more immersive experience, however and wherever you read us - on desktop, tablet and mobile.
What will not change is our commitment to telling the stories of the people of Canberra, providing the best coverage of the public service and politics in the nation and keeping you informed about your community.
You'll find it easier to navigate the site to find what most interests you, whether it’s the latest breaking news stories, local topics or global interests. We’ve created distinct sections to highlight the most important information first, plus redesigned the experience to showcase the depth and breadth of our coverage: to educate, challenge, entertain, spark discussion and expose wrongdoing.
You’ll find new features such as Shortlist, where you can queue articles to read wherever you are. Simply log in to your device and pick up where you left off. We’ve also improved our commenting tools, so you can join in the debate and see what has Canberra talking.
I would also like to thank you for your ongoing support of The Canberra Times. It is a privilege to be editor of this great masthead, and an honour to lead such an impressive team of dedicated and talented journalists.
