About Us

Press Gazette has been reporting on British journalism without fear or favour since 1965.

Today our main focus is news, but we also carry features, interviews, analysis, gossip and a fortnightly podcast interview.

Our mission is to provide a news and information service which helps the UK journalism industry do its crucial work more effectively.

This means highlighting the best in our industry and also, sometimes, the worst.

Our general view is that British journalism is too important for us to shy away from providing a forum for honest negative criticism when required and from probing into difficult areas.

We also try to provide a campaigning voice for journalists and to champion the important role journalism plays in British society.

In recent years this has included successful campaigns to stop police viewing journalists’ call records without judicial approval and to stop the Freedom of Information Act being seriously watered down.
