Byline Times is run by a small, dedicated team of journalists providing a platform for freelance reporters and writers to produce fearless journalism not found in the mainstream media.
Peter Jukes and Stephen Colegrave are the newspaper’s Founders and Executive Editors.
Hardeep Matharu is Editor of Byline Times’ news site and its monthly print newspaper, co-edited with Peter Jukes, and produced in partnership with the design team at Yes We Work.
Ella Baddeley is Byline Times’ Head of Operations.
Sam Bright is Chief News and Politics Reporter.
Byline Times does not intend to report the daily news cycle. That’s for others. Our aim is to concentrate on ‘what the papers don’t say’. We will follow the story wherever it goes, without fear or favour. No PR company, advertiser or press baron can influence the stories we choose to cover. Our integrity comes from our editorial independence.
While the newspaper is not politically partisan, it is not neutral and stands against corruption, injustice and the erosion of truth and the rule of law. Accurate information is the lifeblood of a democracy and, although everyone is welcome to their own opinions, facts cannot be debated.
Accuracy also requires us to report our country more fairly. Byline Times believes many communities and regions are misrepresented in the media because they are under-represented. We hope to give a voice to those not provided a platform elsewhere.
Byline Times’ sister organisations are the crowdfunding journalism platform Byline.com, its investigative unit Byline Investigates and the annual summer event Byline Festival. All are separate entities.
