Islington Tribune

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Islington Tribune is a free, independent newspaper that covers the London Borough of Islington in north London. It was founded in 2003 as a sister paper to the Camden New Journal. It carries significant influence locally due to its high news content, investigations and large readership: it has the highest circulation of the local papers in the borough.


The paper was founded in 2003.[1] In 2006 the Islington Tribune, along with its sister paper the Camden New Journal - broke the national story that Government minister Margaret Hodge had described the war in Iraq as British Prime Minister Tony Blair's biggest mistake.[2] The editor of the paper was subsequently interviewed on the BBC and Channel Four.

The Islington Tribune is contributed to by Emily Finch and Calum Fraser. Former reporters include Kim Janssen and Andrew Walker, who works for the BBC, as well as former Camden New Journal deputy editor Andrew Johnson. Peter Gruner, an award-winning environment journalist who previously worked for the Evening Standard, worked for the title until 2015.
