Birmingham Post Lite returns this week - Press Gazette

Birmingham Post Lite returns this week

Free weekly paper the Birmingham Post Lite is back in print after a brief hiatus.

Press Gazette reported last week that the title, published by Trinity Mirror subsidiary BPM Media, suspended publication prior to Christmas.

Birmingham Post Lite’s decision to cease publication followed the withdrawal and closure of rival paper, The Birmingham Press, late last year.

However, the paper originally launched last April and distributed to 18,000 homes in the Solihull, Harborne and Sutton Coldfield areas of the city has now returned.

A BPM Media spokesperson said: “Having implemented a seasonal suspension to take account of lower property advertising revenues over the festive period, the Birmingham Post Lite will now return to publication this week.”
