The campaign will run across the titles, on in-house ads, social media and is currently to be seen on out-of-home sites.

Newslocal publisher John McGourty said: “Get closer with your local and the campaign direction is the perfectly captures of NewsLocal’s purpose – to inform, entertain and bring people and families in the local area closer to each other and their communities.

“We are thrilled with Channelzero’s brand concept and are seeing strong engagement from our readers as a result of our new compact paper size and our renewed messaging and commitment to readers”.

Channelzero’s CEO, Mikey Taylor said: “We pride ourselves on working collaboratively with clients to ‘Zero In’ and unlock their brand’s value and drive transformative growth for their business.

“In ‘Get Closer with Your Local’ our team got to a great place for Newslocal.
