“ Southampton's local daily newspaper. „
Being a Southampton girl i do read this paper regularly and i have to say its always been very informative and usually worth the 30 odd pence they charge us for it.
The first Southern daily echo was published in August 1888. The main office's of the newspaper are in Redbridge area of Southampton. But years ago the main echo office was actually based where the above bar entrance to the shopping centre west quay is.
The echo is published mon - sat and usually appears in the shops between 10am and lunchtime.
The current editor is Ian Murray.
I have been reading this newspaper since i was a lot younger.
I always find this newspaper very useful for a number of things.. reading the local announcements i.e deaths, birthdays etc. My family always use this for coming of age announcements. I have had many a photo in there.
Its also great for buying local items, cars, renting properties etc and finding a job on job days which are Thursday and Saturday.
The news articles are always very interesting to read, although a little depressing sometimes, but that comes with any newspaper. When do we ever get good news?
Lets hope the daily echo carries on for many more years to come. We love it.
