The Waranga News is a volunteer community newspaper serving the Waranga region of northern Victoria.
Way back in September 1978, an enthusiastic group of community-minded people who mourned the passing of the Rushworth Chronicle finally got their 'baby' on the road.
These days the Waranga News has a print run of 1100 each fortnight, including some 250 subscribers.
