Premier to Expand Empire

A recently-founded newspaper publisher is about to extend its reach even further, with the launch of two more titles.

Glasgow-based Premier Publishing already operates four, free monthly titles in the city – enjoying a combined circulation of 100,000 copies.

The company, which has been on the go only since March, already publishes the West End News, the Northside News, the East End News and the Southside News.

From the eighth of next month, it is launching City Centre News and Inverclyde News – again both free, monthlies – each with a print run of 20,000.

The company is owned by Campbell Murdoch,
