The Costa del Sol News has been for sale on the coast for 13 years and this weekly newspaper takes great pride in its solid local coverage of the coastal region it serves. English-speaking residents have welcomed the paper, giving the 'Sol', as it is affectionately known, a steady increase in readership since the newspaper was launched.
The paper's formula is simple. It has a commitment to follow issues which interest readers and this has helped shape the publication into one, which is closely involved with what residents want to read about. The paper aims to reflect their concerns and interests in all aspects of Costa life.
Much has changed within its pages since the first edition was published in October 1996 as a black and white fortnightly. Today the Costa del Sol News appears on the newsstands every Thursday and its bright full colour front page is easily recognisable. Inside the paper, readers can find a wide selection of local topics including news, current events, fiscal and legal advice, sport, Costa TV Times, motoring, free classifieds section, regular columns and competitions with exciting prizes. As the paper continues to win the confidence of readers and advertisers, so it grows and this summer sees a bigger, better paper packed with more news and more stories.
