The Guardian announces it is to launch a new digital European edition in autumn 2023 and is expanding and deepening its coverage with a range of new editorial roles
The European edition will be a brand new destination for the Guardian’s digital readers in Europe and beyond, providing a dedicated English-language front to the website and app for a uniquely-Guardian take on Europe and the world. The new edition becomes the Guardian’s fifth, and the first to launch since 2015, alongside its successful UK, US, Australia and international editions.
Supported by this editorial investment, the Guardian’s new European edition will tell compelling stories and highlight developing themes from across the continent, bringing Europe to the world and the world to Europe for Guardian readers.
Katharine Viner, editor-in-chief, Guardian News & Media says:
“The Guardian has always been deeply committed to reporting on Europe, with readers on the continent telling us how they come to the Guardian for a perspective they can’t find anywhere else, or to follow coverage of key issues that are important to them such as the climate crisis, technology, migration and events in Ukraine. Today we are doubling down on our commitment to Europe by expanding our reporting even further with talented new journalists and announcing a dedicated new digital edition for European readers that aims to provide clarity on Europe for readers around the world.”
Anna Bateson, chief executive officer, Guardian News & Media says:
“In Europe the Guardian has a deeply engaged readership and fast-growing revenues, and we believe there is significant opportunity to grow further internationally, engaging more deeply with our diverse, global audience. We have ambitious plans to build on our growing European audience, to serve them better and persuade both readers and advertisers to support the Guardian’s world-class journalism.”
Further details on the Guardian’s Europe edition will be announced in the coming months. Readers can sign up to the Guardian’s This is Europe newsletter to receive the latest news and updates closer to launch.
