Well if any more evidence was needed as to why Johnston Press are going under. You just need to read this high quality journalism. Well I felt really well informed after reading this.

If they set up a paid account that got rid of all the advertising I would sign up for £5/month. They should check the spelling, grammar and facts before releasing articles though as they are poor sometimes.

I looked at the most recent financials of Johnson and they have a precarious amount of debt. Many different regional newspapers come under the banner of Johnson. I think to survive L.T., the Star will need to be separated out from the Johnson Group and bought separately . The Sheffield Star has an advantage in that many of the newspapers in the Group are "Small time local" newspapers with a major challenges as a stand alone.

In contrast, The Star per se has a potential 500K people in Sheffield and  another 500K  in and around south Yorkshire. If they got the right product/ingredients together for the Star, and drew 7.5% of this circulation potential, ie. 75,000 people, would investors be able to make things work when advertising revenue is added  ?

The star when at York street used to print around 250k copies every day when it had 2 editions ,since moving to dinnington those figures dropped off .

the main two reasons would be 

1 the older generation has died off 

2  most papers are now online which the younger generation now download 

if the star was to go back to being an evening paper that could help its struggling sales

I think we should also doff our cap to the “excellent” photograph that accompanies this hard hitting slice of journalism. 

 

Honestly, why bother.
