The Daily Echo
– also known as the Bournemouth Daily Echo
or the Bournemouth Echo
– is a tabloid newspaper published and sold from Monday to Saturday across eastern Dorset and south-western Hampshire
. Besides Bournemouth itself, its circulation area covers the south-east Dorset conurbation including Christchurch and Poole and a wider area bounded by Swanage to the west, Shaftesbury to the north and New Milton in neighbouring Hampshire to the east.
It was founded in 1900 as The Bournemouth Daily Echo. In 1958 it switched from morning to evening publication and consequently changed its title to the Evening Echo; it reverted to morning publication in 1997, assuming its current title at the same time.
It’s published by Newsquest (Southern), part of the Newsquest media group owned by Gannett. The editorial offices are in Bournemouth, with sub-offices in Poole and Swanage.
