The coastal wealth media is a booming industry, with the likes of Zoho, The Bali Times, RBA and others all launching their own press, and many more on the way.
But in a nutshell, the coastal wealth industry is the new frontier of the news media, where news and analysis can be sourced from anywhere in the world, while the media is driven by profit.
But how does the industry come to be?
And is it good for our national news agenda?

1/20 The coastal press boom: the latest developments Coastal news is now a $3 billion a year business, with media companies like Zoho and RBA leading the way, with their own print and online publications.
With print and digital media the main drivers of the growth, it’s a great time to be a coastal writer.
But where will all this new money come from?
2/20 In the news?
What is the coastal media about?
In the past few years, we’ve seen the rise of new outlets like The Blyth, The Queensland Times and The Australian, which are all now run by people with backgrounds in journalism.
The Australian is one of the biggest news and opinion websites in the country.
The Blynth is an online newspaper which was founded in 2010.
In its new role, it is the second-largest news organisation in Australia, behind the ABC.
The Queensland Telegraph has also launched its own website, The Courier Mail, and is currently in talks with news outlets to become a digital-only news organisation.
The RBA has announced plans to create a new online publication called News Australia, with an aim to grow it into a digital news agency.
3/20 What is a coastal news journalist?
The term coastal news reporter is often used to describe people who cover local, regional or national stories.
They are also often known as coastal writers, and they have been in the industry for a long time.
However, coastal news has been on the rise for quite some time now.
It’s a genre that has gained traction in recent years thanks to the rise in the global economic crisis, as well as to a host of events such as the election of Donald Trump.
Some of the first to use the term were the late David Blythe, the editor of the ABC’s Brisbane Courier-Mail.
He was one of Australia’s first local news writers, as he covered a series of local issues, such as local politics.
He wrote for the paper for just two years before moving to the ABC, where he spent his career covering local issues.
4/20 Who is on the frontline?
The key players are the coast and coastguard.
While the industry is driven primarily by profit, the coastguard is also critical to the economic and political wellbeing of Australia.
The Bureau of Meteorology is responsible for forecasting the weather and forecasting sea-level rise.
The ABC and the RBA are responsible for news and information.
The media is also a key player in the sector.
The coastal media is an important part of the media landscape in Australia.
While some of the major media outlets are owned by the industry, others are owned and operated by government agencies, universities, local councils, churches and charities.
The most powerful broadcaster in the coastal industry is Radio National, which is controlled by the ABC and RBC.
The Government has long been supportive of the industry and the ABC is an early supporter of the Coast Guard’s annual coastal news conference, which takes place at the start of each year.
5/20 How big is the industry?
The industry is a $5 billion-a-year business.
It accounts for about 5 per cent of the Australian newspaper market.
There are more than 3,000 publications in the state-owned Australian Publishing Corporation.
The industry employs about 2,000 people, with more than 80,000 journalists across the country contributing to the Australian news agenda every year.
It is also growing fast.
Newspapers are owned in a number of states, but are the majority of the paper market in NSW.
The state’s coast is home to about 60 per cent, and the Queensland coastline is home the rest.
