News Corp Australia has launched a campaign to thank the chain of frontline retail workers who have helped keep the nation informed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Newsagents, supermarket staff and petrol and convenience workers are being acknowledged for their dedication in ensuring newspaper customers maintained access to crucial coverage during the pandemic.
The commitment of thousands of retail workers during these challenging times has meant that newspaper readers across the nation have not missed a beat.
Damian Eales, chief operating officer – publishing at News Corp Australia, said: “Beyond the newsroom, there is a network of extraordinary people who work tirelessly through the night and into the dawn to ensure that our papers are printed, transported, sold or delivered to the 2.8 million Australians who turn to us for trusted news and information.
“Like our journalists and print centre employees, these distribution and retail workers – such as newsagents – are among the unrecognised people who stayed on the retail front-lines, determined to help keep Australia informed and connected.
“They’re the vital force we rely upon to ensure that news can continue to reach thousands of communities across our nation, and help to share the amazing stories that our journalists uncover.
“To them, we say thank you for your dedication and commitment.”
The Thank You press campaign launches today in print across News Corp’s metro and regional newspapers and will run for a week.
