About Perth Herald

Pulse of the city, pride of the state

Perth, Western Australia news portal.

Uses the slogan ‘pulse of the city, pride of the state.’

Perth Herald chronicles all the latest news about this city located on the banks of the Swan River.

As the fourth most-populated city in Australia and the West Australian capital, Perth is a major source of breaking news, much of it relegated to the national news desk.

The online newspaper features mining and metals news, reflective of the huge impact the mining industry has on Perth and the north of the state which is substantially resources-rich.

Perth Herald provides Australia news, international news and business. The AFL is a special focus as Perth houses two teams in the national AFL competition, the West Coast Eagles and the Fremantle Dockers. Yachting stories are also provided given the wide popularity of the sport in Perth, particularly since the Royal Perth Yacht Club’s heroic America’s Cup win in 1983 in Newport in the United States, which ended the New York Yacht Club’s 132 year hold on the cup.

Title: Perth Herald


Mission: Perth Herald was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Perth Herald, an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, the metro, and Western Australia in general. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Perth Herald and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.
