The Valley Profile is an independently-owned, weekly community newspaper that delivers 100% local news in the Hauraki and Thames Valley region.
We deliver 16,000 copies to every letterbox and business in Hauraki-Thames Valley, connecting approximately 35,000 readers in the Hauraki Plains, Paeroa, Waihī, Thames and Thames Coast, plus bulk distribution around the Coromandel Peninsula.
This much-loved community newspaper began nearly 30 years ago as the Plains Profile by a group of hard-working volunteers passionate about their community. In April, 2020, local journalist Teresa Ramsey took over the Plains Profile, renaming it The Valley Profile to reflect the new area of the Thames Valley.
YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS
