Stonebow Media, the publisher of The Lincolnite and Lincolnshire Reporter, is changing its structure from August 1.
CityX, the business and lifestyle publication, along with its associated events including the Lincolnshire Business Expo and the Lincolnshire Technology & Innovation awards, will operate under a separate company, CityX Ltd.
CityX Ltd will be spearheaded by Dean Graham, one of the two co-owners of Stonebow Media Ltd. Dean will be the sole director of CityX Ltd, and two staff from Stonebow Media are moving to the new company and offices, Megan Bates, Events Manager, and Sarah Barker, News and Lifestyle Editor.
Meanwhile, Stonebow Media Ltd will continue to publish The Lincolnite and Lincolnshire Reporter, with Daniel Ionescu remaining the sole director and shareholder of the company, along with seven editorial and multimedia staff.
Clients who booked advertisements across both companies will see all the commitments honoured, while new bookings will be made separately. You can discuss this at any time with Daniel Ionescu on 01522 837 219 or email [email protected]
Moving forward, Stonebow Media will continue to publish Lincoln’s favourite news website, The Lincolnite, and Lincolnshire Reporter, the home of local democracy in the county, currently reaching together more than 500,000 monthly readers across the region.
Daniel Ionescu, Founder and Director of Stonebow Media, said: “An exciting new chapter in our journey begins this week after almost nine years since The Lincolnite began. For our readers, our mission is to help them navigate their daily lives, while keeping them informed and entertained. For our clients and partners, we offer unparalleled reach in front of hundreds of thousands of readers, which is an excellent business proposition. We look forward to serving Lincoln and Lincolnshire in the years to come, as we have exciting plans ahead.”
Dean Graham, Founder and Publisher of CityX, said: “After greatly enjoying the last five years taking The Lincolnite from breakthrough publication to the leading news website in the region, it will be exciting to once again start with a publication with huge potential, this time with the added opportunity to span multiple cities.”
