‘Hyper-local’ newspapers to launch in Kettering and Corby

Hyper-local fortnightly newspapers The Kettering Extra and The Corby Extra are set to launch today, with traditionally-dressed news vendors set to roam the towns to spread the word.

A newspaper for Wellingborough is set to launch in a fortnight’s time.

Editor Judith Halliday, a Northamptonshire–based journalist, said: “The local community will be at the heart of each publication. We are committed to bringing positive, good news to communities that have previously been left feeling they no longer have a way of finding out what is going on around them.

“Circulation areas will be tight and the news content hyper-local. Extra aims to prove that small and local can be beautiful. We will be right there on the corner with the local community - watching, reporting and sharing all the news.”
