Abstract In the capital cities, the trend over the past 40 years has been that newspaper circulations have declined as populations have increased. In the provinces, the story is often different, as this case study of three daily newspapers which the Dunn family published in separate cities in provincial Queensland shows. Why? To a large extent, the Dunn newspaper ethos of localism and integrity reflected the desires of their communities and won the loyalty of subscribers to their newspapers.
