It was launched in 1989 as a rebranding of the earlier Middlesbrough Advertiser, which was founded in 1983. It’s one of a series of three Herald & Post titles for the Tees Valley, Cleveland and South Durham; the others cover East Cleveland and Stockton & Billingham.
(There were six in the series. The North Yorkshire Herald & Post was closed down in October 2008. The Darlington and South Durham editions were merged in April 2009 to form the Darlington & South Durham Herald & Post, which itself ceased publication in late November 2011.)
It comes out on Thursdays. An e-edition’s also available free via the website (which is actually the Evening Gazette‘s).
