CONTACT us if you have a pitch or an idea for a story you think we should be investigating.


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 is a monthly newspaper. We normally go to print in the first two weeks of the month, with printed editions posted out two days after print date. The digital versions are immediately available to subscribers to download from their accounts.


Byline Times’ sister organisations are the crowdfunding journalism platform Byline.com; the press corruption site Byline Investigates; the video channel Byline TV; Byline Books and Byline Festival. All are separate entities.

Byline Times is owned by Byline Times Ltd (company number: 11658725).
