The Federation has welcomed the decision by publisher Reach PLC to include pro rata terms for newsagents as part of new price increases for 23 of its local news titles.

The increased prices are for newspapers covering mainly the north west of England and Wales and will take effect from next week.

See table below for details.

 

News retailers in Reading, Berkshire, are also looking forward to having a new independent weekly title on their shelves next week, following the launch of Reading Today.

Wokingham Today will publish the new paper focused on Reading every Wednesday from October 20, with a cover price of 90p. It will also have a companion website which will be updated throughout the week.

Reading Today will be edited by Wokingham Today founder Phil Creighton, who formerly served as features editor on the now-defunct Reading Post, published by Reach predecessor company Trinity Mirror.
