The local media - local newspapers and radio, regional television, cable television and local news on the internet - represents a diverse and rapidly-changing sector of the British media landscape. Bringing together media academics, local journalists and other media professionals, this text presents a thorough, up-to-date and authoritative account of recent developments and future prospects for Britain's local newspapers, local media and local journalism.

Drawing on current research and relevant literature, the book covers:

*key developments in the local media scene
*the distinctive editorial format of local newspapers
*news sources and other sources available to local journalists
*recent developments in media policy
*online journalism
*ethics and regulations
*the impact of new technology.

Situating the study within the context of local, national and multi-national media networks, this unique text provides students with a well-written and wide-ranging assessment of all aspects of the local media in the UK and as such, will be a welcome addition to the current literature.
