Australian Press Council welcomes a new Indigenous Member Publication
 
The Australian Press Council is pleased to announce that a new Indigenous publication, the National Indigenous Times, has joined as a member. This adds another masthead to the list of more than 900 print and online media outlets that have formally committed themselves to the Press Council’s high standards of ethical journalism and its mission to advocate for press freedom.
The National Indigenous Times is an online weekly newspaper that aims to celebrate positive stories and achievements and advocate for reconciliation and is owned by Indigenous businessmen Wayne Bergmann and Clinton Wolf.
“National Indigenous Times is delighted to be accepted as a member of the Australian Press Council,” said National Indigenous Times owner Wayne Bergmann. “We are a growing publication, with a growing national readership. We’re excited – and feel privileged – to be promoting positive stories about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and our achievements.”
“National Indigenous Times is glad to support the Press Council’s mission to promote high standards of media practice in Australia and we look forward to working together in the coming years.”
Mr Bergmann is a proud Nyikina man who has served as Executive Director of the Kimberley Aboriginal Law and Culture Centre, CEO of the Kimberley Land Council, Chair of Walalakoo Aboriginal Corporation, Chair of the Expert Indigenous Working Group for the COAG Investigation into Indigenous Land Administration and Use, and CEO of KRED Enterprises, an Aboriginal charitable foundation.
The Chair of the Press Council, Neville Stevens, said: “It is important that the Press Council remains committed to increasing its diversity of membership to reflect the nature of Australian society.”
The Australian Press Council was established in 1976 and promotes adherence to high journalistic and editorial standards. Press Council membership encompasses most of the major newspaper, magazine and online publishers in Australia, accounting for approximately 95 per cent of circulation.
