The new owner of the Oldham Chronicle has confirmed that the news website will relaunch next week.

The Chronicle newspaper ceased publication after 163 years last August when its parent company, Hirst, Kidd and Rennie Ltd, went into administration.

Credible Media, which owns local radio station Revolution 96.2, bought the Chronicle in October as well as quarterly magazines Oldham Business Edge, the Knowledge and lifestyle title, Signature.

Managing director, Matt Ramsbottom, told the radio station that the new Chronicle will relaunch on February 14th.

He said: “Everyone has worked hard to get the Oldham Chronicle brand publishing local news again online. 

"With the love the readers have for the Chronicle, Valentine’s day is fitting to relaunch the website and social media platforms.” 

The new site will be free to view.
