The Courier is one of Britain’s biggest regional morning newspapers and is an established title in east central Scotland. With five daily editions, The Courier provides in-depth local news for Stirlingshire, Perthshire, Fife, Angus & The Mearns and Dundee. Teams of reporters based in our offices in Dundee, Perth, Kirkcaldy and Arbroath have excellent knowledge of local issues and fill more than six pages a day of news from their patches. We also have a political editor in Edinburgh and specialist Business and Farming teams in Dundee.
In early 2012, we changed format from broadsheet to compact and increased overall content by a third including introducing a brand new business section, extending farming and giving twice the amount of sports coverage. Our Features team has developed weekly Property and What’s On supplements and a new Saturday Lifestyle magazine and midweek Motoring pull-out.
Other recently launched initiatives include Impact 100, which seeks to identify and list the most influential people in Courier Country every year and The Courier Business Awards, which are announced in November.
The Courier also has a significant digital presence. At the heart of our online offering is the flagship website www.thecourier.co.uk which covers breaking news from Courier Country, a selection of the top stories from the paper and a preview of tomorrow’s news. We also have a team of bloggers who react to stories every day and an army of Tweeters who bring their own eclectic views to the daily news agenda.
At The Courier, we believe that Local Matters and that is exactly what you will find in our pages and on our website.
