The Senior News Network has further expanded into NSW with the launch of a Central Coast edition of the network’s free monthly newspaper, Seniors Newspaper.
The move marks the second time this year the APN News & Media-owned brand has expanded out of south-east Queensland, with Seniors Newspaper distributing in two northern NSW regions in April and May.
