Media Centre: Syndication

Archant Syndication has quickly become one of the most successful and dynamic operations of its type in the UK.

It has close links with the country's national newspapers as well as magazines, television and radio all over the world since being launched in August 2002.

Run by syndications editor Red Williams, the unit has sold thousands of stories as well as hundreds of pictures in the last five years.

There are four flagship dailies at the beating heart of the unit - the Norwich and Ipswich-based

  • Eastern Daily Press
  • Evening News
  • East Anglian Daily Times
  • Ipswich Star

This powerful, action-packed quartet generates some of the best stories and pictures in the media business.

Red works alongside their newsdesks and picture desks seven days a week to make sure that it sells the top headline-makers.

Syndication of the day to papers ranging from the Daily Star and The Sun to The Times and The Daily Telegraph - and everything in between!

Archant also boasts a formidable arsenal of leading weekly titles all over England. They have all proved an amazingly rich source of human interest stories, hard news, brilliant off-beat yarns and excellent images.

Papers such as the Sidmouth Herald, Midweek Herald and Exmouth Journal know deepest Devon inside out while the Weston & Somerset Mercury is on top of everything that moves in the popular seaside resort.

Syndication also profits from Archant’s many outstanding weeklies in and around London. The Hampstead-based Ham & High has a well-deserved world-famous reputation for the quality of its coverage in the celebrity-crowded haunts of north London.

The Islington Gazette does a superb job of scouting very much the same patch to give us unrivaled coverage of that slice of the capital.

The Recorder series in Essex, the East London Advertiser, the Hackney Gazette and the Barking & Dagenham Post capture the essential East End spirit every week of the year.

The Comet, Herts Advertiser and Welwyn Hatfield Times have the inside track on Hertfordshire while moving east the Cambs Times, Hunts Post and Wisbech Standard are fantastic flag-bearers for the Fens.

Mix in the Lowestoft Journal in north Suffolk and the Yarmouth Mercury across the Norfolk border and it's clear that Archant Syndication has a veritable goldmine to seam every day of the week.
