STV to launch four local news services

STV is launching four local news services for the cities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The services will also be available as apps, free to download on iOS and Android devices, and will be accompanied by a desktop and mobile website for each city.

STV’s current portfolio of local sites will be rolled into these city services, which will be available later this summer. Existing STV Local sites are now inactive and users will be directed to the STV news website during the transition.

David Milne, head of digital publishing at STV, said: “The new city services are designed to offer consumers a vibrant, exciting and fun way to engage with everything happening in Scotland’s largest cities and more details will be revealed ahead of launch later this summer.”
