Who will come out on top in local newspaper skirmish?
The regional press receives too-cursory a glance from doom-mongering, London-centric media experts. So we’ve let experienced former editor Steve Dyson loose to critique regional or local newspapers from across the UK.
You won’t know how, where or when he’ll taste your splash, assess your courts and council reporting or measure your story counts. All we guarantee is that his unique, detailed analysis of the ink on paper that more than 80pc of British adults still read will appear here, on the penultimate Wednesday of every month.
