Boruneo Shinbun

Boruneo Shinbun / ボルネオ新聞, (Balikpapan, Indonesia)

Boruneo Shinbun Masthead

The Eastern edition of the Boruneo Shinbun was published by the branch of Boruneo Shinbunsha in Balikpapan, the present-day East Kalimantan province on the island of Borneo during the Japanese occupation period. The Japanese navy put Asahi Shinbunsha in charge of managing Boruneo Shinbunsha, headquartered in Banjarmasin of Dutch Borneo with branches in Balikpapan and Pontianak in Borneo, and Makassar, Dutch Celebes. Two existing local newspapers, the Kalimantan Raja and the Borneo Baru, were requisitioned. The Boruneo Shinbun was first published in Banjarmasin on December 8, 1942, followed by the eastern edition in Japanese on April 29, 1943. A twice-weekly Malay version was also published. The newspaper primarily served the Japanese troops in Borneo.
