Northcliffe's titles announce merger plan

Northcliffe's titles announce merger plan

Two UK regional papers, Bristol's Western Daily Press and Plymouth's Western Morning News, announced they will merge editors and senior editorial roles, BBC News reported.

The two papers will remain unique, but have only one editor-in-chief. Production will be shared between Plymouth and Bristol, but the reporting teams will remain independent, The Herald reported.

This move could impact up to 20 jobs in Devon and 11 posts in Bristol.

Sales of Western Daily have dropped by 10 percent to about 34,000 last year, while Western Morning News' sales have decreased by about 6.5 percent to just over 35,000.

Both titles are produced by regional media group, Northcliffe.
