Posted on: April 8, 2020 by Claire Meadows

Regional titles and reporters have joined the #buyapaper campaign encouraging the public to support local titles.

Papers including the Carmarthen Journal, Harrogate Advertiser, Herald Express in Torquay and Llanelli Star have also been using Twitter to call for support for the local news industry.

Highlighted yesterday by the Society of Editors, the #buyapaper campaign, originally launched in January 2019 by JPIMedia, has seen journalists from national, regional and local newspapers, magazines and broadcasting, encourage readers to support struggling print titles during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
