Samoa gets new weekend paper

2:38 pm on 26 October 2010

A new newspaper has been launched in Samoa.

The paper's editor, Merita Huch, says the Weekender is an expansion of its news services.

The veteran print and television journalist, who has also worked in New Zealand and Nauru, says if demand warrants they will publish on other days of the week.

The Weekender competes for readership in the weekend with Sunday Samoan published by The Samoa Observer Ltd, which publishes daily, and Newsline.
