Regional newspaper publishers featured again in the annual list of the 1,000 wealthiest people in the UK and Ireland.
The Sunday Times Rich List features rock stars to footballers, oil barons to construction company owners.
But there were still some spots occupied by media moguls who run a range of newspapers from high-selling regional dailies to free weeklies in small rural towns.
His entry said that Iliffe Media showed profits of £15.9m, in 2006. The company’s titles include the Burton Mail, Heartland Evening News and the Cambridge Evening News, which has recently appointed Colin Grant as its new editor-in-chief.
The Iliffe family also runs Channel Television and has interests in property and marinas.
The company owns the Express and Star, Britain’s biggest selling regional daily, the Shropshire Star and the Guernsey Press and Star as well as radio stations and paid-for and free weeklies across Shropshire, Staffordshire and the Black Country. The Graham family also has interests in property and other assets.
Along with the company’s radio stations, Tindle Newspapers owns the Cambrian News, Abergavenny Chronicle and West Somerset Free Press as well as the Wellington Weekly News which it bought from Northcliffe.
Their estimated wealth is £670m, an increase of £36m but a fall of seven places in the rankings. They recently sold the broadcast rights for Dennis the Menace to the BBC for a TV series, due on screens next year.
