ABOUT US

Taranaki Community News is an independent online hub where people can read about the wonderful things happening in Taranaki, and where community groups can send their news and have it seen by an online audience.

This is a volunteer project run by qualified multi media journalists who want to offer a place where the community can be involved in providing the news.

This free website offers quality stories about our region, as well as a platform for people to share their stories, and a place where the community can be involved in providing the news.

We encourage you to share your content with us, and then we can share it with Taranaki.

Taranaki Community News could be a wonderful asset for our region. However, it will only work if you do – so please share your stories about your community with us, and then make sure you share them out to your networks once they are live on the website.

To pitch us story ideas, to send us media releases, or to request a theatre or music review simply email us on taranakicommunitynews@gmail.com.


Taranaki Community News was founded in 2019 by Taryn Utiger – a qualified multi-media journalist.

Together with a bunch of crazy talented friends, Taranaki Community News has been launched. The aim is to create a community space where people and organisations can contribute, read and share, share, share!

There’s no money in it for any of us – we’re just doing it for the love.
