The Worcester Standard
is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper distributed to about 50,000 households in and around Worcester
, the county town of Worcestershire.
It was launched in 2000. It’s part of the Redditch-based Bullivant Media group of freesheets, founded by Chris and Pat Bullivant in 1989 as Observer Standard Newspapers. OSN went into official administration in March 2009 while a buyer or buyers were sought for the group’s titles; the Bullivants relaunched their business and succeeded in rescuing most of their titles from closure.
The head offices are in Redditch, but there’s also an office in Bromsgrove (shared with the Bromsgrove Standard). An earlier office in Worcester itself appears to have closed.
It comes out on Fridays. An e-edition’s available free on the website.
