No plans to take Johnston North West dailies weekly
Titles include the Blackpool Gazette, the Lancashire Evening Post and the Wigan Evening Post.
The managing director of Johnston Press North West has said there are no plans to convert any of its daily titles – including the Lancashire Evening Post – into weeklies.
Gary Fearon made the announcement two days after his company announced plans to turn the Halifax Courier, Northampton Chronicle & Echo, Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph, Peterborough Evening Telegraph and Scarborough Evening News into weeklies from next month.
Johnston’s dailies in the North West include the Blackpool Gazette, the Lancashire Evening Post and the Wigan Evening Post.
