The Bendigo Advertiser (commonly referred to as The Addy) is the daily (Monday–Saturday) newspaper for Bendigo, Victoria and its surrounding region. The Bendigo Advertiser is published by Australian Community Media with a circulation between 5000 and 7000 depending on the day of publication.
First published in 1853, the Bendigo Advertiser has undergone many changes since its inception, including a move to tabloid form and a change in name from The Bendigo Advertiser to just The Advertiser. In November 1918 the paper was purchased by the proprietors of its competitor The Bendigo Independent, who amalgamated the two titles under the banner of the Bendigo Advertiser. As of 3 April 2010, the paper is once again known as the Bendigo Advertiser.
The Bendigo Advertiser currently delivers news as a printed newspaper, digital paper, and on its webpage.
Currently, The Bendigo Advertiser employs about forty-five staff in Bendigo, however like all Australian Community Media publications some of the tasks are shared with staff across other locations.
