OneMK (formerly MK News) was a local weekly free newspaper and online news service, based in Milton Keynes. MK News was launched in August 2002 and was delivered to homes across the Milton Keynes urban area and to commuters at Milton Keynes Central railway station. Its owners, Trinity Mirror, closed OneMK in October 2016.[1]

The paper was delivered on Wednesdays (competing with the Milton Keynes Citizen which is distributed free on Thursdays). The newspaper claimed an audited adult readership of 130,000.[2][3]

OneMK online[edit]

OneMK.co.uk (formerly MKWeb) was the website counterpart to OneMK, the newspaper. Articles that appeared in the paper also appeared online at onemk.co.uk, along with extra daily news reports that may not have featured in the weekly newspapers.

Ownership[edit]

OneMK was 'published and originated by a division of Local World',[4] In 2012, Local World acquired MK News owner Iliffe News and Media from Yattendon Group.[5] Local World in turn became part of Trinity Mirror in November 2016.[1]
