It was first published in 1878 as the Nottingham Evening Post, at which point it cost a ha’penny (slightly more than 0.2p) and was four pages long.
It incorporated a rival, the 1948-founded Nottingham Evening News, in 1963 and became the Evening Post and News. In 1970 it dropped the News and became simply the Evening Post; 30 years later it took its present title.
It’s currently published by the Nottingham Post Group, part of Northcliffe Media, which in turn has been the major constituent of the new Local World media group since the Daily Mail & General Trust spun it off in late 2012.
It appears in two editions: First (morning) and Final (evening). The Sports Post (on Saturdays during the football season) appears to have been dropped. The companion weekly freesheet Recorder series ceased publication in July 2011.
Its old website at thisisnottingham.co.uk, like those of other Northcliffe newspapers, was changed into a local portal website in 2011, with the Post merely providing news stories for it. However, it received a new website in July 2013 as part of Local World’s decision to provide “publisher-branded” sites for all Northcliffe titles.
