Highlights for March

  • The Independent is the largest news pureplay in the US and has been for the past 12 months.

The Independent has been at the front line of journalism since its launch in 1986. It is the UK’s largest quality digital news brand and was the first of the quality news publishers to become fully digital (in 2016). Publishing from 12 countries and in six languages, The Independent is a truly global news organisation.
