“A good read” - what they said about the Herald at the EDF Energy South West Media Awards.
“A clean looking paper and a good read” - that is how the Midweek Herald was described as it was named Weekly Newspaper of the Year (Free).
Reporter Katy Griffin was at the EDF Energy South West Media Awards in Bath to collect the accolade yesterday (Thursday).
The awards cover Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, and the Herald was up against a sister title, the Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead Times.
Editor Belinda Bennett said: “This is fantastic news for the whole team.
“Now we are at the top, we intend to do everything we can to further improve the product to retain our number one position.
“We aim to be totally selfless and focus entirely on the requirements of our valued advertisers and loyal readers. They drive what we do.”
Announcing the Herald’s win, the competition organisers said: “The Midweek Herald prides itself on strong local exclusives on the front and inside the paper on a regular basis.
“Besides the hard news, it’s packed with news in briefs but remains a very clean looking paper and a good read.
“The sport section is very well laid out and the whole paper is simple to navigate.
“Clean and good looking, the Herald is good on campaigns too...”
Don’t miss next week’s Herald for the launch of a brand new campaign.
