Magazine Links continued

UK magazine for news about the industry
-now owned by Tindle Newspapers and requires subscription for all but headlines

Radio Daily News
(lot of useful monitoring of news concerning radio)

Another worthy US online publication concerning radio.

Radio-Internet Magazine
US daily online publication concerning radio on the Internet.

Radio Today, UK
Good site for UK radio news.

TV oriented but also has UK radio news.

Newspaper Links

Sydney Morning Herald
Text of the paper so content is comprehensive but otherwise not a very strong site.
News Corp
The Murdoch papers online but rather weak sites.

Toronto Globe and Mail
Well organised site with reasonably good search engine. Limited archive availability.
Toronto Star
Another reasonable site with reasonably good search engine.

Times of India
Well organised site with reasonably good search engine. Archives quite good and now date sorted. after a re-design

Irish Times
Link to archives search engine. I particularly like the fact it occasionally tells you honestly there are "no items" matching a search instead of listing lots of irrelevant stories.
*Became a subscription site in June 2002*


United Kingdom
UK Guardian and Sunday Observer
Quite good site but requires you to sign-up (free) for full access. Archive back to Sept. 1998. Seems less comprehensive since a recent revamp.
is master site covering all the company's sites.

UK Independent and Sunday Independent.
The newspapers online with a recently improved search engine but one which often produces strange results (Much content is now premium and requires payment).
UK Telegraph (Electronic version Sunday and Daily Telegraph) Another excellent site with a good search engine.Keeps its full archiveback to 1994 online but requires registration (free).
UK Times and Sunday Times
The newspapers online. The sites went behind a paywall on July 2, 2010, so we have removed the link.

We would also note that we have had more problems with this site"locking up" because of a script problem that we tend to keep Task Manager open whenever looking at it just to see if it is causing problems.


Baltimore Sun - Fairly strong site for news in the area. Requires registration for older items.

Boston Globe :
Reasonable site and quite good search engine. Limited free archive availability.

Boston Herald
Nice clean look and useful straightforward search engine.

Chicago Sun-Times :
Another reasonable site and search engine.

Chicago Tribune :
Reasonable site and search engine. Limited free archive availability.
Requires registration (free)
Christian Science Monitor
Reasonable site and search engine with occasional thoughtful articles.

Los Angeles Times:
Well organised site with reasonably good search engine. Limited free archive availability.

New York Times
Strong site but limited free archive availability. Requires you to sign-up (free) for access.

San Francisco ( Chronicle) - link is to SFGate search engine.
Quite a good site producing date ordered list.

San Francisco Examiner - another quite good site
Washington Post
Another good site but limited free archive availability.
