It was founded in 1982 as a part continuation of the Teignmouth & Dawlish Advertiser, itself founded in 1975 as an offshoot of the much older paid-for weekly the Mid Devon Advertiser. (Coverage of Teignmouth was transferred to the Teignmouth Post & Gazette.)
It’s published by Devon & Cornwall Newspapers, a branch of Sir Ray Tindle’s Tindle Newspapers group. The editorial offices are collocated with the Mid Devon Advertiser in Newton Abbot. (This might perhaps seem a little surprising, given that the Dawlish Gazette – another Tindle title – has offices in Dawlish itself; but it appears to reflect an ethos of devolved local management – the Gazette is a separately managed title.)
It comes out on Fridays. An e-edition is also available online, but – unlike most freesheets’ e-editions – has to be paid for.
