Metro announces first weekend issues

Regional newspaper Metro will, for the first time ever, produce weekend issues, both on tablets and in print, across five Olympic and Paralympic weekends. Metro will also publish an additional Tablet Edition later in the day, seven days a week, during the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 325,000 printed copies of the weekend issues will be available on Saturday and Sunday mornings in London. As well as the main news, there will be an extended Olympic section with London focused features and sport. The additional interactive Tablet Edition, published later in the day, will include coverage of the day’s events and previews of the evening events plus features on the main athletes and key action. Readers across the UK will be able to access the main news headlines, video content, a live current medals table and results page plus Twitter feeds and blogs from Metro’s reporters and bloggers at the Games.

Metro will also be enhancing its social media presence with a dedicated Olympics feed on Twitter (@Metro_Olympics) and online.
