Nikolay Malyarov, PressReader’s chief content officer, said: “At PressReader we believe in connecting people through great content, which means bringing together publishers of all types and sizes and helping them build communities of readers beyond their own immediate geographical boundaries. It’s why Archant, the largest publisher of regional and local lifestyle magazines in the UK, is a perfect fit for the PressReader family.
In over 170 years, Archant has developed a loyal following of millions of British readers by focusing entirely on a core value - providing different forms of community media. Now, together with PressReader, they will grow that readership by expanding their reach beyond the UK and across platforms.
With the innovative technology and one-of-a-kind channels we bring to this new partnership, I’m confident that Archant will drive their digital strategies forward, reach their global aspirations and continue on their quest of building the thriving and innovative media business they’re aspiring to be, with the global community reachable as easily as the one in England."
Chris Scarle, Digital Magazines Manager at Archant said: "We are currently placing a strong focus on extending our digital presence and increasing distribution across new platforms. Press Reader is an exciting opportunity for us due to the impressive scale of their user base and the wide range of routes to market that they offer. We look forward to the increased reach and new audience that we will benefit from by publishing our titles with PressReader."
