The Sheffield Star Newspaper (paper version)

Recommended Posts

Letters page unchanged, still great, most entertaining part of the paper.

It beats me where they find the ranters and deranged on a daily basis.

Currently putting Viz to shame.

Their ads have redirected me to porn/virus sites when I accidently clicked them using my phone.

They also have a habit of publishing pointless articles. Eg:

 

"Police Incident...

 

Police incident on Blah-Blah Road.

More news to follow."

They come to Sheffield Forum.

They did get a new editor, Nancy Felder (I think), recently so she may have been cracking some heads. Not bought it for years.

 

I had a moan about the food reviews and similar to her on Twitter and, fair do`s, she replied straight away and didn`t dismiss my concerns.

 

And agree, sports coverage is excellent!

I think the best thing I have seen in the Star recently was fish and chips.

the website is so full of ads and surveys that it is impossible to access at times

 

if I access about 3 different stories, my PC sometimes goes so slow it's hard to cancel the page. Most newspaper websites are similar.

I use to advertise regularly in the star a few years ago but the prices for lineage adverts just got to much to make any money from it,I thought I would give them a ring to see if they had changed a bit,I was pleasantly surprised to be offered some advertising at a very reasonable price the advert also has a link to their online site..

Yes I have seen an improvement. I always buy it when I get home and I was beginning to wonder about its value. They need more reporting on issues important to Sheffield and south Yorks in particular. Throw in more national and world news such as Brexit, the US President elect and his crazy statements, whether Sheffield should have an elected Mayor etc.

They seem to stay away from "Wire" news from such as Reuters, because of the subscription costs I suppose. Penny wise pound foolish ?

Nancy Fielder has made fantastic progress so far! I have met with her a few times and she is clued up as to what people want and what the city needs. Long may she continue!
