Byline Times is run by a small dedicated team, providing a platform for freelance journalists passionate about reporting on issues not covered elsewhere.

Peter Jukes and Stephen Colegrave are the newspaper’s founders and executive editors.

Hardeep Matharu is editor of Byline Times, with day-to-day responsibility of the news site. Hardeep also edits the monthly print edition newspaper, which is produced and designed by Peter Jukes and the design team at Yes We Work.

Ella Baddeley is Byline Times’ Head of Operations.

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’ and investigate the untold stories of modern Britain.

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. Our integrity will come from our editorial independence.

But we are not neutral. Accurate information is the lifeblood of a democracy and, while everyone is welcome to their own opinions, you cannot have your own facts.

Accuracy also requires us to report our country more fairly. We think 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.

Get in touch with us if you have a story you think we should be investigating, an angle which we haven’t covered, or journalism you would like to contribute.

We hope you find Byline Times informative and compelling – and that we can provide you with the important news you can’t find elsewhere.

Byline Times’ sister organisations are the crowdfunding journalism platform, its investigative unit Byline Investigates and Byline Festival. Although there is a synergy between all three platforms, they are separate organisations.
