Your Leicestershire business news will have a new online home in June as we launch an exciting new business website.
BusinessLive is the new, national digital brand from LeicestershireLive and our parent company Reach – and it will bring together business news from Leicestershire and across the UK.
We’ll offer the best coverage of local business markets and of key business sectors nationally, from manufacturing to property and everything in between.
By bringing together coverage from across Reach’s national network, BusinessLive will shine a spotlight on the entrepreneurs, the stars of the future and the small firms that are the backbone of our economy.
We’ll inspire business through trusted local and national content in uncertain times. We’ll give our readers the news and information they need to do business locally and nationally. And we’ll explain what’s happening in the business world, telling the stories behind the headlines.
Our Leicestershire team will continue to bring you the most detailed, consistent and informed business news across all platforms.
Leicester Mercury and LeicestershireLive business editor Tom Pegden will continue to work on the county site and daily newspaper while contributing breaking business news to the new site.
He will also be writing for a new monthly East Midlands BusinessLive magazine which will appear in the Leicester Mercury, Nottingham Post and Derby Telegraph.
That supplement will be slightly different to the Business Monthly magazine it replaces, but the same quality will be there, and instead of being aimed at an audience restricted to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, the stories we write will be seen far further afield.
The new supplement will also link in with the new national business website.
Tom said: “BusinessLive will showcase the best business stories from each of our regional news centres run up and down the UK.
“Hopefully it will become a go-to site for business leaders who want to see what’s happening here and now.”
Your Leicestershire business content will have a new online home on BusinessLive – a platform that will be inspiring, informed and inquisitive and a new destination site for local and national business news.
It will launch in June – we’ll see you there.
