About
MediaNorth

MediaNorth is the quarterly publication of the Campaign for Press & Broadcasting Freedom (North) which covers the North West, Yorks & Humber and North East of England. We also have supporters in Scotland.

CPBF (North) highlights threats to regional media such as the assaults on jobs and conditions in local and regional newspapers, and campaigns for strong regional media. We also strongly support alternative media, both print and online.

Nationally we want diverse, democratically accountable media.
