All about the United Kingdom’s national, regional and local press

Reading Post

The Reading Post is a weekly tabloid newspaper sold in the Berkshire town of Reading and a radius of approximately 10 miles around it, taking in Henley-on-Thames, Bracknell, Wokingham, Newbury and Tadley as well as the surrounding villages in mid-Berkshire, south Oxfordshire and north Hampshire.

Up until the end of May 2009 it was a freesheet companion to the Reading Evening Post. However, the Evening Post ceased publication at that point, and the Post became a mostly paid-for title, with a new freesheet companion, getreading.

Although it’s mostly a paid-for newspaper, nearly half of the print run is distributed free via pick-up points.

It’s published by Berkshire Press Ltd, a branch of Surrey & Berkshire Media, which became part of Trinity Mirror in March 2010 following its acquisition from the Guardian Media Group. The editorial offices are in Reading.

It’s published on Wednesdays.
