Its online website also publishes many of the stories featured in the newspaper. As at 9th August 2013, the current price for the daily editions is $1.30 and $1.60 for the Saturday edition.


The newspaper began in 1876 as semi-weekly under the title The Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser published by George Hooke & Joseph Smith.[1] In 1910 it changed its name to The Tamworth Daily Observer under the new publisher Albert Joseph for his company Tamworth Newspapers Co.. Joseph had struck a deal with G A Codrington, the proprietor of the competing newspaper Tamworth News, to form one daily newspaper. Under the agreement Codrington dissolved his paper and became managing director of The Tamworth Daily Observer.[2] The paper underwent two more changes of title under Joseph's publication, first to The Daily Observer in 1917 [3] and then to The Northern Daily Leader in 1921 which it remains today.


The Northern Daily Leader is distributed to the city and local region of Tamworth and the towns and villages of Quirindi, Walcha, Manilla, Bingara, Barraba, Nundle, Murrurundi, Gunnedah, Uralla, Werris Creek, Caroona, Willow Tree, Wallabadah, Curlewis, Kootingal, Moonbi, Attunga, Carroll, Breeza, Currabubula, Sulcor, Bective, Somerton, Duri.[4] It has a weekly readership of 35,929.[4]
