The local media - local newspapers and radio, regional television, cable television and local news on the internet - represents a diverse and rapidly-changing sector of the British media landscape. Bringing together media academics, local journalists and other media professionals, this text presents a thorough, up-to-date and authoritative account of recent developments and future prospects for Britain's local newspapers, local media and local journalism.

Drawing on current research and relevant literature, the book covers:

*key developments in the local media scene
*the distinctive editorial format of local newspapers
*news sources and other sources available to local journalists
*recent developments in media policy
*online journalism
*ethics and regulations
*the impact of new technology.

Situating the study within the context of local, national and multi-national media networks, this unique text provides students with a well-written and wide-ranging assessment of all aspects of the local media in the UK and as such, will be a welcome addition to the current literature.

Editorial Reviews

'This inspiring collection... examin[es] contextual and practical matters at the forefront of a sector facing incessant challenges and change... There are many excellent chapters... the breadth and scope of subject matter, including fanzines and the alternative press, ensures this book is informative and provocative, and should inspire a wealth of much-needed research. It also provides essential context for anyone contemplating a career in journalism, a factor often sidelined in mainstream journalism training. - Sarah Niblock, Journalism Practice
