Today we have a birthday to celebrate. The Sydney Morning Herald is 190 years old. The newspaper, then known as The Herald, first rolled off the presses six years before the crowning of Queen Victoria.

Nearly two centuries later we have the largest audience of any Australian newspaper, in print and online.

On this episode of Please Explain, Tory Maguire and the Herald’s editor, Lisa Davies, discuss how The Sydney Morning Herald has combined fierce protection of its journalistic heritage with the innovations that a modern newsroom demands.

Our supporters power our newsrooms and are critical for the sustainability of news coverage.
