Sunday News

In recent years the New Zealand press has entered the Sunday newspaper field, the earliest of these being Sunday Feature News which was published in Christchurch from August 1957 until February 1958. The oldest surviving Sunday newspaper, The City Express, was first published in New Plymouth on 5 June 1963. This was followed in Auckland, on 20 October 1963, by Sunday News. In 1965 Truth (N.Z.) Ltd. bought a controlling interest in this paper and, beginning with the issue of 6 June 1965, is publishing simultaneous editions of Sunday News in Auckland and Wellington. On 30 May 1965 the Wellington Publishing Co. (The Dominion) published the first number of a new paper, The New Zealand Sunday Times.
