Whilst the national Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom closed down on 30 November 2018, the Campaign for Press and Broadcasting Freedom (North) lives on and produces MediaNorth quarterly.
CPBF(North) covers the North West, Yorks & Humber and North East of England. We also have supporters in Scotland.
CPBF (North) highlights threats to regional media such as the assaults on jobs and conditions in local and regional newspapers, and campaigns for strong regional voices in broadcasting.
CPBF (North) holds public meetings. If you agree with the need for diverse, democratically accountable media, we invite you to be part of our Facebook group. You can also follow us on Twitter @campaign_and
