East London Advertiser
Archant London’s East London Advertiser has picked up national accolades for the second year running in the prestigious Regional Press Awards.
The Advertiser was named Best Weekly Newspaper of the Year, (below 20,000 circulation) for the second year running at the 2009 Regional Press Awards, as well as being outright winner in the Campaign of the Year with a prolonged and successful campaign for the Tower Hamlets local history library.
The East London Advertiser has played a prominent role in the life of London’s East End since its launch in 1866. Over the years it has been at the forefront of covering local news: the Jack the Ripper murders, Churchill’s siege of Sidney Street, the anti-fascist riots in the 30s and the indomitable Cockney spirit of the Blitz.
Even to the present day, the IRA bombings in Docklands, the development of Crossrail and London’s Olympics’ site have all been presented in the fair and balanced way that has been the hallmark for the Advertiser’s journalistic style over the years.
It is a style that has made the Advertiser the voice of the East End for 140 years. In that time the community of the East End has constantly changed and adapted as it acts as a melting point for the rest of London. The old London docks formerly acted as a gateway for immigration for Europe and Asia.
The docks may have gone, but the East End’s multicultural community continues to grow and evolve and the East London Advertiser continues to grow and evolve with it.
