Just can’t get enough
Community newspapers provide readers with quality reporting on local news, usually delivered direct to the door. emma data proves just how much readers enjoy these newspapers.
Two in three readers (66%) look forward to reading the next edition of their local newspaper, and 69 per cent said they would miss their community newspaper if it was not available.
This is also true for young readers. The under-25s, who are often assumed to have little interest in their local communities, still consider their community newspaper important. Some 40 per cent say they look forward to reading the next edition, and 48 per cent say they would miss it if it wasn’t available.
With this level of engagement, the future of community newspapers looks bright.
