MyLondon launched in late 2018, and has grown quickly over the past three years, increasing its editorial staff from 20 to 70 over the past 12 months and becoming Reach’s third largest regional newsroom operation just behind the MEN and the Liverpool Echo. Recently it has invested in its news and What’s On teams, as well as adding a dedicated Race and Diversity editor to its roster, says Reach.
MyLondon Editorial Director Liz Hazelton commented: “With only three years behind us, I’m immensely excited to cross this milestone with the MyLondon team. From the start, we have been proud to provide news for mainstream London and this feels like the ultimate vote of confidence from our readers.
“As we continue to grow, we plan to keep reporting on what’s really happening in every borough, and how to get the most out of life in the capital - even if you’re not a multi-millionaire.”
Reach Chief Audience Officer David Higgerson added: “As exciting as this milestone is, I really believe this is only the start for MyLondon and a sign of things to come for many of our other regional sites. We are hugely ambitious about the potential for MyLondon to not only grow but to earn a truly loyal audience and become an essential part of London life.”
