RMC Media set to Celebrate 30 years in Business

4th April 2016

One of Yorkshire's most successful and innovative media companies will be celebrating 30 years in business this summer.

RMC Media has enjoyed consistent growth since Martin Edwards and John Murphy launched Westside, a monthly lifestyle magazine for Sheffield, in July 1986. Westside remains at the heart of a company that has over 30 employees and publishes nine lifestyle and business titles for Yorkshire, Derbyshire and the North Notts region. Those titles include First For Business, the monthly independent voice for business in the Sheffield City Region. John and Martin are still the co-owners of a business that has grown steadily over three decades. In fact, it now prints and distributes 1million magazines every year. RMC Media also has a thriving books division that to date has published over 30 titles, ranging from cookery books for Michelin-starred restaurants to novels and autobiographies. Ceaseless innovation and steady expansion have been the constant themes behind RMC Media's steady growth, and the latest venture will be a complete overhaul of its website in 2016. This will include the launch of RMC Media's latest title, Vibe, an online magazine with original content aimed at Millennials.
