Editor hails launch of two new titles

In January the publisher announced the launch of the two new titles, as part of its Cornwall-wide Voice series, whilst closing down the Truro-based Sunday Independent.

Speaking to HTFP, Fraser said: “We’re pleased to have added two new editions to the Voice series, meaning we now have eight editions covering most parts of Cornwall.

“We’ve had a lot of encouraging and supportive messages from people we’ve contacted in the areas served by the new titles, in and around Liskeard, Looe, Camborne, Redruth and Pool.”

He added: “It reinforces our passionately held belief that there is a future for – a growing future for – traditional print newspapers operating as a trusted source of information and entertainment for their local communities.”

The Voice series also has titles covering Bodmin, Newquay, Penzance, Truro, Saltash, and St Austell.

A third new Voice title, covering North Cornwall and Launceston, is due to be launched in June.
