Johnston Press was one of the biggest publishers in the UK regional press with 300 weekly newspapers and 18 daily titles.
Growing from a small base in Scotland it expanded rapidly during the 1990s amd 2000s buying up a series of daily titles including The Scotsman, The Yorkshire Post, the Sunderland Echo and The News, Portsmouth.
Its portfolio eventually grew to around 200 regional and local newspapers and associated websites.
The company went into administration in 2018 but swiftly re-emerged as a new business, JPIMedia, which continued the old JP’s publishing activities.
