Media in Cumbria

Cumbria is well served by a variety of traditional print and broadcast media providers. 

There are locally printed and widely read daily and weekly newspapers with a rich history such as the Cumberland News, the Times & Star and the Westmorland Gazette and their associated online publications.  

There are public, commercial and community television and radio stations provided by national broadcasters like the BBC and ITV and smaller local media groups.

There's also the new breed of dedicated online only news and information sites such as Cumbria Crack and Cumbria 24.

You'll find background information and links for all the major media outlets based in Cumbria via the menu on the left of this page.
