. . . any takers?
Newspaper group Johnston Press puts itself up for sale
any takers? any takers? any takers? any takers? any takers? any takers?
Let's hope it's not advertised for sale on it's own website as nee fucker would be able to read it
I'd buy it to sack the whole sports team for hiring that mag journalist
Four Sail: Newspapper.
(details below obscured by horrendous pop-up autoplaying video ad)
How long can it survive as a daily printed paid for paper?
Even the London Standard is a free paper these days
Trinity, who own the Newcastle Chronicle, are supposedly interested
They won't buy it till it goes bust, then roll in to pick it up for pennies.
Haven’t read it since I finished 26th in the World Cup dream team many moons ago
They'll try and make it a more attractive proposition by passing the pension debt onto the Pension Protection Fund - I'm a member of the scheme and I've already been told that this is something that they are looking at doing
A north east wide paper with some proper journalistic content is the only way forward. The echo is an absolute joke of a newspaper and is only bought by old people out of habit. Regional news, sport, and proper features across the whole region is the only solution imo
A turd that needs flushing, It's represented Sunderland poorly for years now.
Since it moved from pennywell to Leeds (iirc).
Wrong, we need our own strong media arm and not get sucked into the Newcastle centric media as a footnote, the Echo in it's current crippled pathetic form however is not the answer.
My lass works for TM and says they can't afford to take on the £220m debt, so I would imagine something would have to be worked out before anything happened, plus jp print a lot of titles for TM,
I see you're not one to hold a grudge.
A lot of that debt is the pension deficit which they will attempt to pass on to the government. JP and Trinity did talk about merging a few years ago so I would guess that TM would still have an interest
