The Herald and Weekly Times Limited (HWT) is a newspaper publishing company based in Melbourne, Australia. It is owned and operated by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp Australia (formerly News Limited), which purchased HWT in 1987.
The HWT's newspaper interests date back to 1840 and the launch of the Port Phillip Herald. The company publishes the morning daily tabloid Herald Sun, which was created in 1990 from a merger of the company's morning tabloid paper, The Sun News-Pictorial, with its afternoon broadsheet paper, The Herald. These mastheads had a 150-year (The Herald) and 68-year (The Sun News-Pictorial) history in Melbourne, respectively; HWT had bought The Sun News-Pictorial in 1925.
The HWT also publishes The Weekly Times, aimed at farmers and rural business.
