The Journal du Dimanche Early Edition now available in four new cities in France

After the launch of its Saturday afternoon Early Edition last 7 March in seven French cities (Caen, Deauville, Lille, Lyon, Rennes, Rouen and Marseille), France’s national Sunday newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche is now available at midday on Saturdays in Toulouse, Bordeaux, Nice and Tours.

The JDD is also successfully expanding at international level with early availability throughout Europe and the Maghreb.

The launch of the Early Edition (Première Edition) – with its signature phrase “l’info à tête reposée” (news at your leisure), – was promoted by a communications campaign nominated by CB News magazine for its 2009 Media Awards in the “best media initiative” category.
