The Express & Star launches a new interactive app
Harry Leather: “Good journalism costs money and in a world where spin and misinformation is rife, local journalism is more important than ever.”

The E&S News app features selected news, sport and features from the Black Country, Staffordshire and beyond, together with a selection of daily interactive puzzles. Designed as a carefully-curated essential daily briefing, the app – which costs £1.99 a month – provides in-depth analysis and opinion from the Express & Star’s team of journalists.

Subscribers can store articles to read at their leisure, search previous editions and receive news alerts so they can stay up to date. Updated twice a day, the app does not bombard you with needless information, say the publishers. Instead, it cuts out the noise to provide the information that matters, full of context but free of ads. The E&S News app also features their latest football podcasts, including the successful Wolves Poddy with Nathan Judah and Joe Edwards.

Harry Leather said: "The Express & Star has a proud heritage of serving communities across the Black Country and Staffordshire by highlighting injustice, challenging those in power and providing incisive sports coverage every fan can rely on. This app is one more way that we can showcase the great work our journalists are doing on a daily basis.

"Good journalism costs money and in a world where spin and misinformation is rife, local journalism is more important than ever. The people of the Black Country and Staffordshire can now access exclusive content in an ad-free environment for an extremely competitive price. They also have the chance to shape the future of our news coverage. All subscribers are encouraged to make contact with me directly and share their views on the app and what they think we should be covering."
