The publisher behind Didsbury Magazine and Hale & Bowdon Magazine has branched out into MediaCityUK, with a new bi-monthly publication.

Called MediaCity, the first edition will appear on October 1st and be distributed to local businesses and shops as well as to residential apartments.

“MediaCityUK seemed a natural progression for us as a business. It’s the new home for the BBC, ITV and Coronation Street and has created an influx of new people to the city; many of whom have opted to reside in the areas in which we already have titles, such as Didsbury, Hale, Bowdon, Alderley Edge, Wilmslow and Bramhall,” explained Salim Uddin-Khandakar, group managing director of Salutions Limited.

“MediaCityUK offers an exciting and creative opportunity to showcase yet another great community in our fabulous city.”

The first issue will have a print-run of 6000 and features BBC Inside Out North West presenter Jacey Normand on the cover.

Uddin-Khandakar, who established the publisher in 2002 alongside wife Beverley added that MediaCity would follow the same format as their other titles, featuring “people, fashion and shopping, health and beauty, travel, home and garden and much more besides.”
