Controversy as Hull Daily Mail wins Regional Paper

29 September 2017

Hull Daily Mail won an award for “Best Daily Newspaper” at the O2 Media Awards last night.

More than 200 journalists attended the awards ceremony in Leeds hosted by BBC Breakfast’s Louise Minchin.

Statistics from the Audit Bureau of Circulations show that the Hull Daily Mail sold a total average of 25,396 copies from January to June 2017.

Janet Bark, 55, from West Hull, shared her views on the Hull Daily Mail, stating the negativity that many of the stories contain. She says:

Evelyn Rose, 32, from West Hull, agreed. She said:

“I’m not big on the Hull Daily Mail. A lot of their stories are not very well written.”

Tom Richards, 41 from West Hull, however, believes that the Hull Daily Mail deserved the award. He said:

“I do read the Hull Daily Mail. I think they are not the best, but they cover very many stories and many people read the stories. I would say they deserved the award.”
