EU Referendum:
Discover what’s making the media headlines

Welcome to Loughborough University’s EU Referendum media analysis – a real time news audit lifting the lid on what media coverage the campaign groups, political parties and key arguments are securing each week.

The analysis is being carried out by the University’s Centre for Research Communication and Culture and will concentrate on the main news bulletins/programmes on BBC1, BBC2, ITV, C4, C5, Sky, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 4 and all the main daily national newspapers.

Weekly reports will be released on this site each Monday, running right up to election day.
