Evening Standard

Our audience

The Evening Standard reaches an audience that are influential as well as being affluent. From the corridors of Westminster to the heart of the City, the Evening Standard talks to opinion formers, setting the agenda for the capital, providing insight and comment on national, international and regional news through the focus of London.

The Standard is every Communication Director’s dream…it often sets the agenda for that day’s broadcast bulletins and the next day’s papers…it has a similar influence to Today on Radio 4….both outlets have a virtual monopoly on opinion formers' attention during their time slots
