Abstract: This research aims to capture how Asia-Pacific ethnic print media are surviving in the digital media age. It covers two countries and three cities — Brisbane and Sydney in Australia and Auckland in New Zealand. These destinations were chosen as major hubs of Pacific Islander and Asian migrants, with a thriving ethnic media scene. This particular pilot study is focused on Brisbane, with Sydney and Auckland scheduled for completion later in 2017. The impact of digital media on mainstream print media is fairly well researched, but somewhat neglected with regards to ethnic print media. This study aims were to address this gap. The study, based on online research and face-to-face interviews with ethnic print media proprietors, shows that ethnic newspapers are holding out better than their mainstream counterparts in some respects, but major challenges lie ahead
