Newspapers are another important medium for daily communication across Tasmania.

The Hobart-based Mercury has the largest circulation around Tasmania, followed by the Launceston-based Examiner. Weekend editions of these two newspapers have higher circulation figures than those during the working week.

Community newspapers also carry weekly community news and advertisements for local communities such as Launceston, Devonport, the East Coast, Huon Valley, Circular Head, Scottsdale and New Norfolk.
