It was published by Trinity Mirror North West & North Wales Ltd as a companion to the paid-for weekly tabloids the Runcorn Weekly News and the Widnes Weekly News. It replaced an earlier freesheet, the Runcorn & Widnes Herald & Post, in 2009.
It had no website of its own; its online presence was through the paid newspapers’ website. It also shared their editorial offices in Widnes.
It came out on Fridays. It ceased publication in the summer of 2011.
