Birmingham Mail set to launch new edition for borough as closure of Solihull News announced
THE Solihull News is to cease publication after serving the town for close on 90 years.
Founded in 1930 as the Warwickshire News, it has most recently been the free weekly newspaper you know and love.
Sadly, the Solihull News will no longer be available after the December 21 edition.
But don’t worry – you will still be able to get your Solihull news, sport and features fix.
From January 2, the Birmingham Mail is to launch a daily Solihull edition.
Available from Monday to Saturday, the new Solihull Mail will feature your local news, views, features and sport.
This will be in addition to the Mail’s existing diet of stories that affect the whole of the West Midlands.
Allied with the unbeatable reach of sister digital brand Birming- hamLive, readers can rest assured they will be able to keep in touch with all things Solihull.
And our exciting new platform InYourArea is a place for neighbourhood communities and local businesses to come together to share news, advice and offers all in one place.
Reach plc Midlands Editor- inChief Marc Reeves said: “Clearly, closing the Solihull News isn’t a decision we’ve taken lightly.
“But with such a strong stable of print and online titles that are already immensely popular across the borough, we know we can continue to serve readers and advertisers with the best local news and exciting new ways to reach customers.”
Latest figures show that BirminghamLive and other Reach plc online titles have a Solihull audience of more than 194,000 every month.
