We reach 8 out of 10 people in Manchester every month

Our Manchester newsbrands reach 8 out of 10 people in the city every month – and we're working on the other two!

Industry audience data shows that we reach 83% of Manchester every month though the Manchester Evening News, online and in-print, and our other titles in the region including the Manchester Weekly News, which relaunches next month.

Publication of the weekly, which reaches 185,000 Mancunians every month, was paused during the height of the coronavirus pandemic. But all four local editions – Salford, Tameside, Trafford, and Stockport & Wilmslow – will be available again from Thursday September 10th, bigger and better than ever before.

These unrivalled figures are another significant achievement for Reach’s Manchester newsbrands. In November 2019 the MEN celebrated becoming the first-ever regional news site in the UK to reach the 1 billion page views in a single year.

The site – named ‘Website of the Year’ at the Regional Press Awards for two years running – regularly generated more than 3 million views a day last year.

It’s easy to see why we’re number one. We’ve been publishing in the city for more than 150 years – our chief reporter Neal Keeling has been working on the patch for 32 of those years – and people trust us to report on Manchester life with honesty and accuracy.

Let us help you realise your goals and ambitions
