The Central Western Daily newspaper (also known as the Western Daily)[1] was founded in 1945 in Orange in the Central West region of New South Wales, its first edition being published on 3 October 1945.

It followed the a range of earlier publications from Orange, including The Advocate[2][3] and The Leader (also known as the Orange Leader).[4][5] The range of newspapers published in Orange were celebrated in 1961, with a centenary edition, which acknowledged the original newspaper: Western Examiner and Orange, Molong, Wellington, Dubbo, and Lachlan Advertiser originally published on 7 December 1861.[6]

In the early 1950s it was complemented for its welcoming attitude to New Australians[7] and quoted for its contributions.[8]

It was also regularly quoted by other New South Wales regional newspapers for stories and humorous items.[9][10]

It was also target in the correspondence columns of regional rivals within New South Wales, either by location or newspaper.[11][12] It has also been known as the "Western News" in terms of the region it is in New South Wales.[13]

Currently, it is a paid daily newspaper sold six mornings per week, from Monday to Saturday. The focus of the Central Western Daily is community news and issues and stories about local people; however, it also contains regional, national and world news.

Mostly the newspaper ranges from a minimum of 28 pages up to 68 pages on a Saturday. The average daily circulation is approximately 6,000 units.

Earlier runs of the publication are available online and microfilm.[14][15][16]
