Camden New Journal

The Camden New Journal is a free, independent newspaper that covers the London Borough of Camden. It was born out of a strike in the 1980s supported by campaigning journalist Paul Foot, Holborn and St Pancras MP Frank Dobson and the paper's editor Eric Gordon. It carries significant influence locally due to its high news content, investigations and high readership.

It was named Free Newspaper of The Year at the Press Gazette's national industry awards in 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2010. It was nominated in 2002 and 2004.

Current journalists include Dan Carrier, William McLennan, Alina Polianskaya, Steve Barnett, Tom Foot and Richard Osley. One contributor, Rose Hacker, was believed to be the world's oldest columnist: her column ceased with her death in 2008 at the age of 101 [1]

The paper also includes a diary page, penned by John Gulliver.

In 2006, the Camden New Journal - and its sister paper the Islington Tribune - broke the national story that Government minister Margaret Hodge had described the war in Iraq as British Prime Minister Tony Blair's biggest mistake.[2]

In 2008, journalist Paul Keilthy was nominated in both the Reporter Of The Year and Feature Writer Of The Year categories at the Press Gazette awards. Richard Osley was also shortlisted for Feature Writer Of The Year. In 2009, journalists Dan Carrier and Simon Wroe were nominated for the same award. The newspaper was nominated for Newspaper Of The Year for regional newspapers with high circulations.

The Islington Tribune is a widely read local newspaper in the London Borough of Islington, contributed to by Peter Gruner, an award-winning environment journalist who worked for the Evening Standard. Former reporters include Kim Janssen and Andrew Walker, who works for the BBC. Former Camden New Journal deputy editor Andrew Johnson left to work at the Independent on Sunday for four years. He has now returned to the Islington Tribune.

The West End Extra, covering the entire borough of Westminster, is also produced from the New Journal's Camden Town office. Both are also edited by Eric Gordon.
