It was founded in 1992 as an independent publication called the Evening News following the decision of the Nuneaton Evening Tribune to go weekly. It was subsequently renamed the Heartland Evening News (and the masthead still bears the sub-title “Incorporating The Heartland Evening News”).
Staffordshire Newspapers (part of the Iliffe News & Media group, owned by the Yattendon Investment Trust) took over the HEN in 2006. In 2008 an agreement with Observer Standard Newspapers led to the HEN contributing to that company’s Nuneaton Observer weekly freesheet.
In January 2009 a further shake-up led to a change of title to the Nuneaton News and the decision to make one issue a week (the Wednesday edition) a freesheet, including the property pages.
The editorial offices are in Nuneaton (and were shared with the Nuneaton Observer until that title’s demise in January 2009).
It’s available as an e-edition on paid subscription. The earlier free e-edition on Wednesdays appears to have been withdrawn.
