Sunday Independent announces deal with Cornwall Today
Cornwall Today had announced via social media that it was set to shut, but its publisher Reach later said it was ‘exploring options’ to preserve the monthly title. The Liskeard-based Sunday Independent will now take on two of the magazine’s long-serving staff members, editor Kirstie Newton and graphic designer Edwin Andrews, who will continue to be based in Truro for the immediate future. The Independent Group has also recently launched two editions – Cornwall and Plymouth/West Devon – of Independent Property Plus, a free property newspaper of which 40,000 copies are distributed each fortnight. The July issue, the first under Independent ownership, will be published on June 21.
