The Fmg History

The Friday-Ad paper

Friday Media Group as we know it today stemmed from our original flagship brand. ‘The Friday-Ad’ was born in 1975 when we launched the UK’s first free classified paper in Sussex. It came about after founders Chris and Liz Kidger needed to sell their car, but realised there was nowhere for them to advertise it. This inspired them to print a publication to bring buyers and sellers together in a simple, low-cost way.

With the growth of the Internet, our online platform Friday-Ad.co.uk launched in 1994 becoming one the UK’s leading classified website while maintaining the same core values. This online revolution initiated a new beginning and the birth of Friday Media Group, where we rapidly expanded into other niche markets and across the globe. FMG is always looking for new ways to help people and their businesses to grow in a world of every-changing technology. What will be next for FMG?
