Kent on Saturday
History and background
The Saturday Observer was launched in March 2005 and is distributed across all of Kent. The newspaper's focus - as with sister title Kent on Sunday - remains on editorial content.
Its editor is Gary Wright, who has previously worked on national tabloid The People, regional press agency Kent News & Pictures, local TV news show Meridian Tonight and the KM Group title the Kentish Express.
The paper was relaunched under its current name in 2009. It is now a paid-for title in the newsagents, whilst free copies are now distributed via home delivery rounds, and business drops. Kent on Saturday also has a fast-growing e-edition available free online through www.kentnews.co.uk or by subscription.
Kent on Saturday is designed to provide an entertainment-led introduction to the weekend. Therefore it covers the top television shows, local celebrities, shopping and leisure, in addition to a back bone of hard news and sport.
Also included as a supplement is "Review", a pull-out title which includes restaurant reviews, TV and film reviews, and a property section.
