Former Johnston Press editor launches weekly title

A rival title has been launched by Jason Marshall.


The Hawick Paper was launched following Marshall's voluntary redundancy from Johnston Press.

The new title is in direct competition with Johnston Press's Hawick News, which Marshall edited for nine years.

Hawick News had a circulation of 4, 731 when it was last audited in 2012, and costs 90p per issue.

Speaking about the Hawick Paper, Marshall said: “We’ve had a phenomenal reaction to the paper from townsfolk and advertisers, all of whom have backed us to the hilt. We’re a hyper-local title, with reporters on the ground in Hawick, and very affordable advertising rates.


“For what it’s worth, re the current state of the industry, people haven’t fallen out of love with newspapers, they’ve fallen out of love with what’s in them.


“There’s not a word in our paper today that doesn’t concern our town and that’s the only way we will succeed.”
