Title: Birmingham News


Mission: Birmingham News was conceived in September 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Birmingham News, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city, the metro, and regional area. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Birmingham News and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.

Associated sites include: Northern Ireland News | Scotland Star | The UK News | Belfast Bulletin | Bristol Star | Cardiff Star | Leeds Times | Liverpool Star | London Mercury | Yorkshire Observer
