The Oldham Times Becomes A Daily Newspaper

4 January 2021

Oldham has a daily newspaper once again thanks to The Oldham Times.

The paper was launched as a weekly title just over three years ago when the town lost its only local paper.

Now it is going daily and will bring you the very best Latics coverage in print six days a week as well as online.

There will be match action and reaction, and all the latest news and views from Boundary Park.

Editor Steve Thompson said: “We’re delighted to be bringing back a daily title ­— something a proud town like Oldham deserves.

“Times have been tough in local journalism during the pandemic so this show of confidence in such a new title is great to see.

“We will be striving to serve Oldham with even more news, features and sport in the months to come.”

Oldham Council leader Sean Fielding said: “Local newspapers have an important role in holding local decision makers to account.

“Whilst the gap left by the demise of the Chronicle was partially filled by the weekly Oldham Times, only a daily edition can truly replace what was lost back in 2017.

“I’m pleased to see the Oldham Times taking this step.

“The paper going daily is not just good news for the Oldham Times and its readers, it is good news for the borough as a whole.”
