The Gloucester News is a weekly freesheet tabloid newspaper for the city of Gloucester and nearby villages in central Gloucestershire.
It was founded in 1981 as the Gloucester News Shopper, but became simply the Gloucester News in 1984. Since 2010 it’s been technically one edition of an overall The News title, of which the Cheltenham & Tewkesbury News is the other.
It’s published by Gloucestershire Media, part of Northcliffe Media, which is the regional newspaper publishing division of the Daily Mail & General Trust. The editoral offices are collocated with those of The Citizen in Gloucester.
It has no website of its own; its web presence is through Northcliffe’s thisisgloucestershire.co.uk website, which in 2011 switched from being the Northcliffe Gloucestershire newspapers’ website to a portal for which the newspapers merely provide news.
It comes out on Thursdays.
