Local Newspaper Week to be covered by journalist bloggers

Local newspaper journalists are to blog on the progress of current campaigns in their newspapers for Local Newspaper Week – an event organised by the Newspaper Society to raise awareness of local media.

It is hoped the blogs, which form part of the event’s official website, will appeal to consumers, a press release from the society said, while allowing local titles to promote themselves and their campaigns.

Contributors so far include Mark Bowen, deputy news editor of the Hereford Times, and Donna Pryce, reporter with the Derry Journal.

This year’s Local Newspaper Week will take place between May 5-11.
