How did Motorcycle News come about?
Motor Cycle News is the weekly motorcycling newspaper published by the Peterborough company called Bauer Consumer Media. It’s claimed that MCN is now the biggest weekly motorcycle newspaper worldwide, with nearly half a billion papers sold and more than 1.5 billion readers. As well as newspapers MCN is extremely active on social media and their website, MotorcycleNews.com.
MCN was founded in 1955 by Cyril Quantrill, who was a former employee of Motor Cycling. At the time there were two weekly magazines that were leading the market, Temple Press and The Motor Cycle. These were published on the Thursday of each week, Quantrill saw there was an opening for a Wednesday paper which could concentrate more on Sport.
Quantrill teamed up with a friend whose father owned a print works, Peter Baldwin. Quantrill had everything he needed to produce the first Motorcycle News in November 1955, printing at Baldwin Press. Although things were going well, the magazine was limited to only 3,000 print capabilities. Quantrill knew the only way forward was to sell, he came to an agreement with EMAP in 1956.
Under the new ownership…
Quantrill remained at the magazine as editor and Motorcycle News expanded rapidly. By the time Quantrill resigned the magazine’s circulation was at 67,000. By 1962 Motorcycle New has been split into three short words Motor Cycle News and became known as ‘MCN’. The main revival for MCN was Motor Cycle, which then changed its name to Motor Cycle Weekly, however as MCN was growing this paper didn’t stand a chance and eventually closed in 1983.
As well as MCN selling a ridiculous amount of papers, they quickly released online reading was the way to go, creating an extremely successful website called MotorcycleNews.com and covering all social media platforms.
