It was established by G. & A. N. Scott in 1866. It’s now published by MEN Media, who also publish the Manchester Evening News. MEN Media was sold by the Guardian Media Group to Trinity Mirror in March 2010.
It’s the northernmost of MEN Media’s local weekly titles, but like all the rest of them is produced from centralised editorial offices in the group’s headquarters, which shifted from central Manchester to Chadderton on the outskirts of Oldham in September 2010.
It comes out on Fridays.
