UK regional daily returns as print publication after 2017 shutdown
UK regional newspaper The Chronicle has been revived in the form of a special printed edition a little over a year after it ceased publication. The Oldham Evening Chronicle has returned as a print publication for the first time since August 2017, when 49 jobs were lost at the newspaper after owners Hirst, Kidd and Rennie Limited went into administration. The Chronicle has since been revived as a digital-only news operation under new owner Credible Media, but a publication bearing its name has now also rolled off the presses in the form of a special education supplement. The Chronicle Open Days supplement highlights the best of Oldham’s Secondary Schools and Sixth Form Education organisations, and around 10,000 copies are available for free.
