Gloucestershire newspapers to become weekly releases

Both publications are owned by Gloucestershire Media Credit: PA

Two Gloucestershire newspapers are set to change from daily editions to a weekly release.

The Gloucester Citizen and the Gloucestershire Echo will make the change from October 12.

This change to our print titles is being dictated by the behaviour of our readers and the amazing growth success of our website Gloucestershire Live. By making this change, we’re acknowledging and reacting to how our readers behave.

At the same time, Gloucestershire Media announced a new publication for the region.

For readers who want a daily Gloucestershire print product, we will also be launching a Gloucestershire edition of The Western Daily Press.
