The Society of Editors has launched a daily bulletin for up to date industry news. Ian Murray, executive director of the Society of Editors said: "There is so much news at the moment concerning how the media industry is rising to the challenges of reporting on the Covid-19 crisis and supporting the nation and local communities that the Society felt it important to bring this altogether in a simple, free to access daily bulletin that aims to deliver the latest information to journalists and those supporting the industry. 

"There are challenges for the industry, as there are for everyone at the moment, but how the media is rising to those challenges is in itself inspiring. And if we can keep everyone informed as to best practice, initiatives and developments then hopefully the Society is playing its part in the battle to beat this virus and emerge in as good a shape as possible.

The bulletin is free to sign up for - and we also urge everyone to use the hashtag #buyapaper whenever they are tweeting to remind everyone that while all forms of mainstream media are vital, the printed press and its online services are more important than ever at this time." 

If you would wish to subscribe to the bulletin please sign up here.
