A regional publisher’s ‘pop-up’ pro-European newspaper has today reached its 10th edition – after exceeding its initial print run by six weeks.
Archant launched The New European in the wake of The UK’s vote to leave the EU, to cater for the ’48pc’ of the electorate who voted against the decision.
Its first issue in the streets on 8 July, just nine days after it was first conceived by editor Matt Kelly – thought to be the fastest newspaper launch in UK history.
Originally slated for a four-week run, the company announced it would continue to publish TNE on a rolling basis after exceeding its sales targets.
The newspaper’s retail distribution is focused on London, Liverpool, Manchester, the south of England, Scotland and Wales and other strongly Remain voting areas.
Recently, it has also been circulated abroad in cities including Brussels, Paris, Strasbourg and Berlin, as well as Northern Ireland.
Today’s 10th issue features an interview with comedia Eddie Izzard as well as what is billed as a ten-page ‘European Foodie Extravaganza.”
