Are newspapers published on New Years Day?

In England, newspapers are generally published every day of the year with the exception of Christmas Day.

This tradition was continued as early as 1912, when newspaper editors agreed not to produce a Christmas Day edition of the newspaper giving delivery drivers, newsagents and newspaper vendors across the UK one day off.

Some publications have continued to not publish on certain holidays, such as Good Friday and New Years, to give their staff a much-needed break.

However, that tradition was broken in 2010 when The Sun decided to publish its first newspaper on Christmas Day, with editor-in-chief Dominic Mohan saying at the time:

“Throughout The Sun’s 41-year history, we have always stuck to the agreement between newspaper publishers not to publish a Christmas Day edition of The Sun.

“However, this year we have seen spectacular innovations in the way we deliver news to our readers and we couldn’t resist the opportunity to break with tradition and produce this dazzling digital edition of the newspaper. “

Since then, the publications have continued to publish their articles regardless of public holidays, although some still like to respect traditions.

Which newspapers will be published on New Year’s Day?

Following The Sun’s bold publication of its Christmas Day article in 2010, most newspapers produced their content 365 days a year.

This means regular readers should still be able to get their daily patch on January 1, 2022.

Here is the final list of national documents that you will be able to read this New Year’s Day:

  • The sun
  • The Daily Express
  • The daily mail
  • The Daily Mirror
  • The Daily Star
  • The evening standard
  • The daily telegraph
  • The Guardian
  • The independent
  • scottish

Which newspapers do not publish on New Year’s Day?

Although most newspapers publish their New Years newspapers on January 1, the occasional newspaper has decided to stick with the tradition.

Most news publications will continue to report regularly on the news through their online platforms, so readers should always be able to find their solution elsewhere.

However, these newspapers will not publish a physical article on New Years Day:

  • The Wall Street Journal – (January 2)
  • The Financial Times
