Regional daily launches new weekend edition

A regional daily is set to launch a weekend edition for the first time in its almost 140-year long history.

The Dundee Evening Telegraph will begin producing its Saturday edition, to be known as the ‘Weekend Telegraph’ from next month.

The edition’s cover price will be 55p, as is currently the case for the Telegraph’s five weekday editions.

Among its features will be a 24-page entertainment magazine with TV listings for the week ahead.

It will also contain a section dedicated to grassroots sport and four pages of puzzles, as well as news.

The very first edition, due to come out on 20 August, will be free.

Editor Steven Bell said: “The Tully, as it’s fondly known around Dundee, has a proud history dating back almost 140 years.

“I’m delighted that we will, from August 20, be able to do that six days a week, instead of five.”

He added: “The Evening Telegraph has a loyal readership, and we’re excited to be able to give them more of what they already enjoy.

“There’s lots more exciting news from the Tele to be revealed over the next few weeks.”
