The Orkney News launched on the 1st of February as a way of bringing the alternative news to our island communities. The national newspapers do not reach Orkney until after midday (if at all). Our only local radio station BBC Radio Orkney provides a half hour broadcast on week day mornings and a slightly longer one in the evenings. We have one local newspaper which comes out on a Thursday.
