Ownership and Funding

Perth Gazette is an independent news website founded in 2013, a non-profit organisation. Perth Gazette relies on funding from advertisements from Google AdSense. We receive no government or public funding such as grants or sponsorship opportunities.

The Perth Gazette is owned by Martin McLean, who also volunteers at the news website.

We serve a general audience from Perth and Kinross and other areas of Tayside, with localised news reporting and gathering.

We have 3 members of staff who volunteer and write for Perth Gazette, all names will be placed into the articles blocks, as well as our independent volunteering of editorial team which you can view here.

Our newsgathering is independent of commercial or political interests. We do not accept gifts, including paid travel, in order to avoid any conflict-of-interest or appearance thereof. When we rely on an organization for a product or access to an event, we are transparent about the relationship and note it within the relevant work. The newsroom is insulated from advertisers and underwriters by a firewall.
