The New Zealand Herald is a daily broadsheet newspaper published in Auckland, New Zealand. It is owned by APN (Australian Provincial Newspapers). The Herald has a daily circulation of about 200,000 copies, giving it more than twice the circulation of any other daily paper.[1] Despite the name, its main circulation area is the greater Auckland region area. It is also delivered to much of the top half of the North Island including Northland, Waikato and King Country.[2] The newspaper plans to extend its reach nationally.

In 1876, The New Zealand Herald was merged with the newspaper The Southern Cross owned by Alfred Horton. The Southern Cross was first published in 1843. Year 1863 (MDCCCLXIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Saturday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...

The New Zealand Herald was traditionally seen as a staid, centre-right newspaper, and given the nickname "Granny Herald" into the 1990s. This has changed and today the Herald often draws content from left-leaning British newspapers such as The Independent and The Observer, but it is not expressly sympathetic to any New Zealand political party and often shows editorial opposition to the centre-left government.

In March 2007 APN NZ announced it was considering a plan to outsource the bulk of the Herald's copy editing to an Australian-owned company, Pagemasters. A formal decision is expected in April.

Malcolm Evans sacking

In August 2003, the paper dismissed cartoonist Malcolm Evans, whose cartoons often commented on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. One cartoon by Evans which some readers found offensive depicted the word "APARTHEID", spelled using a Star of David in place of the second "a", scrawled across the wall of a war-wracked neighborhood. The newspaper later said it regretted publishing the cartoon. Evans claims that the then editor-in-chief, Gavin Ellis, demanded he stop drawing about the conflict, an order that he refused, leading to his termination.[3] Ellis denies the allegation.
