NS President: Local Press is an Essential Part of UK News Ecology | newspapersoc.org.uk

Damian Radcliffe's insight:

“We account for 24 per cent of the total spent on news in this country – that’s more than is spent by TV, radio, or indeed by any other medium apart from the national press. We are an essential part of the UK news ecology.”


“And demand for local news and information is growing – whether through printed newspapers, companion websites, smartphones or tablets. Our papers are read by 31 million people a week in print and our online audience is growing rapidly with 62 million unique users visiting local newspaper websites every month.”
