The Evening Telegraph launches the Weekend Telegraph

Steven Bell: "The Weekend Tele has been a project about six months in the making."

The Weekend Telegraph features the same mix of exclusive local news, unmissable sport, features, offers and competitions that have made the Tele Dundee’s best-selling newspaper, say publishers DC Thomson. It will be priced at 55p and will include a 24-page entertainment magazine with TV listings for the week ahead.

Editor Steven Bell said: “This is a really exciting time for the ‘Tully.’ The Weekend Tele has been a project about six months in the making, from the original discussions to the launch of the first edition this Saturday (20 August), and it’s finally becoming a reality.

“The idea was simple – to take the paper we already produce five nights a week and give our fantastic readers even more of what they like. More local news. More sport. More features.”

To launch the first edition of the Weekend Telegraph the paper was free; handed out in and around Dundee and also available in local newsagents. The ‘Tully’ team was in Dundee’s City Square with live entertainment, giveaways and more.

Steven continued, “Folk can expect what they always get from their favourite evening paper: great exclusives, interviews with major local players and amazing real-life stories. Sport will also have a local feel, with a focus on the grassroots football and other activities that we all enjoy. The bonus on a Saturday is Seven, our brilliant new 24-page magazine. I’m really proud of the team that has brought it together and hope that readers are as excited about the Weekend Tele as we are.”
