Newsquest Launches Another New Free Edition of The Argus

Newsquest has demonstrated its faith in the power of printed newspapers with the launch of two new editions of Sussex title The Argus in just four weeks.  

Boasting a bumper 48 pages for its launch edition, the Lewes and South Coast Argus was published for the first time last Thursday (9 February), following the launch of the Mid Sussex Argus on 19 January.

The Lewes and South Coast Argus will be published every Thursday and covers the core areas of Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and Peacehaven. It will be available to pick-up at more than 70 outlets across the entire area and digital versions are also available.

Newsquest Sussex managing director Tony Portelli, said: “Following the successful launch of the Mid Sussex Argus in January, which has captured the attention of both readers and advertisers, I am delighted that we have launched the Lewes and South Coast Argus this week.

“This new title follows our ongoing strategy of placing the iconic Argus brand and design at the heart of our publishing strategy. Combined with our incredible online audience, both new Argus titles offer incredible penetration of their respective markets.

“The Lewes and South Coast Argus is a credit to our talented and industrious editorial and commercial teams.”
