According to All Media Scotland, from Monday the first edition of the paper will reach 330 more outlets thanks to The Herald’s distribution network, with the first edition printed after The Herald and a second for early afternoon, which will be available in 75 more outlets than at present.
Editor Tony Carlin was quoted saying:
This will not affect in any way the normal exclusive Glasgow and west of Scotland content which makes the title a unique publication in a congested and highly competitive marketplace. It also allows us to continue to act as the city’s champion and to live up to our proud claim that Nobody Knows Glasgow Better.
With our presses starting at around 2.30am we are still well placed to publish breaking news stories in our first edition later than most of our key rivals.
Our second edition will be published in the early afternoon allowing the Evening Times to continue to boast of coverage of Today’s News in Today’s Paper. Indeed, our second edition will now be available in more locations and to more readers than at present.
We are confident that the Evening Times will continue to serve its loyal readership to its usual high standards and to further cement its place as a champion of Glasgow and the west of Scotland.
