Wellington's City Voice alive again online

From Morning Report, 8:54 am on 30 May 2022

An alternative Wellington weekly paper that served the capital for eight years until 2001 is alive again in digital form.

City Voice may have been the closest the capital ever got to having its own version of the Village Voice.

The left-leaning giveaway, which was set up by the journalists Simon Collins and Jeremy Rose, went big on community politics, activism and environmental matters, plus reviews and a spiffy gossip column.

All of which can be accessed online in full by way of Wellington Library.

Rose spoke to Corin Dann.
