The Examiner

The Examiner is Australia's third-oldest surviving daily newspaper after the Sydney Morning Herald (1831) and the Geelong Advertiser (1840). As The Launceston Examiner, Commercial and Agricultural Advertiser it was first published on Saturday afternoon, March 12, 1842, on a hand press smuggled into Van Diemens Land disguised as brewery machinery. The Examiner was initially located in Brisbane St, Launceston, and had a staff of 12. It now employs more than 150 people. The first three editions of The Examiner were free after which it sold for sixpence, a reasonable sum for the day. Fifty years later it sold for a penny an edition. Source
